Carter Wolden Curtis – Auto Accident Attorney in Sacramento
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists
If you have been, or ever are injured in a car accident due to the carelessness of driver who has no insurance, then we recommend that you contact a qualified and experienced auto accident attorney from Sacramento personal injury law firm, Carter Wolden Curtis.
California insurance code requires that every motor vehicle insurance policy includes uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, unless you specifically decline it, in writing. This frequently litigated area of law has codes that are complicated and a bit difficult to interpret and understand.
Having a skilled Sacramento auto accident attorney who is well-versed in uninsured and underinsured motorist claims, is the best way to ensure you get fully covered.
Talk to the Experts
When the person who is at fault doesn’t have enough insurance, or doesn’t have any valid auto insurance to cover your personal injury claim, your own auto policy can provide some coverage. This would be up to the limits you set, if you elected to include it in your policy.
If you did choose to include that optional coverage, the limits may still not be enough to cover all your damages. This is where things start to get complicated. Most drivers are not familiar with the ins and outs of insurance policies, and especially the uninsured and underinsured part.
Before settling with the insurance company, or assuming you can’t make a claim because the other driver didn’t have insurance, don’t just talk to any auto accident lawyer in Sacramento; speak to an attorney at Carter Wolden Curtis. All three of our partners have represented insurance companies in the past, and we know how to negotiate with insurers to get your full compensation.
