We all rely on car insurance to pay for injuries and vehicle damage after a car wreck. Unfortunately, many drivers in Dallas, Fort Worth, and throughout Texas either fail to maintain auto insurance or they have inadequate insurance coverage. If you have been injured in a car wreck with an uninsured driver in Dallas, Fort Worth, or anywhere in Texas, it is important to contact a Texas auto accident lawyer as soon as possible. At Tate Law Offices, our Dallas/Fort Worth car wreck attorneys have extensive experience handling uninsured car accident claims and lawsuits. We will discuss your options with you, maximize your case value, and help you get compensation for your injuries and accident-related losses.
In addition to helping you obtain payment for your Texas car wreck injuries or other damages, we will help you with many other practical issues after an uninsured car wreck in Texas including:
- Help you find the right doctor to treat your injuries
- Deal with the insurance companies on your behalf
- Assist you with issues related to vehicle repair and rental cars
Lawsuits after Uninsured Wrecks in Texas
Panic may set in when you realize the driver who hit you is not insured or is underinsured. You may wonder how you can afford to pay for medical treatment or the repair of your car, truck, or motorcycle. While it may seem impossible to collect payment from an uninsured driver, there are options available to you. One option is to collect damages by filing a lawsuit against the uninsured Texas driver. Through a lawsuit, our Dallas/Fort Worth car wreck attorneys can verify whether the uninsured driver has other available resources to pay for your medical treatment or vehicle damage. Possible financial resources we will look to find through a lawsuit include:
- Assets owned by the uninsured driver from which we can collect
- Other insurance policies under which we can file a claim such as an employer’s auto insurance policy, if the uninsured driver was acting in the course and scope of employment when the car wreck occurred
Texas Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Insurance Coverage
In addition to pursuing compensation from the uninsured driver after a Texas car wreck, we will also review your auto insurance policy and contact your insurance company to determine whether you have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. Many Texas auto insurance policies contain uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage to protect policy owners who are hit by a driver without car insurance or with inadequate insurance coverage. Our Dallas/Fort Worth car accident attorneys will handle all contact and negotiations with the insurance companies for you.
Actions of Texas Uninsured and Underinsured Insurance Companies
Every insurance company, regardless of whether they insure you or the defendant, will resist paying money under insurance claims. A common tactic many insurance companies use is claiming exclusions that exist under all types of insurance policies. Insurance companies are skilled at getting car wreck victims to provide recorded statements that allow the insurance company to find some exclusion to the policy coverage. Insurance companies are not on the side of car accident victims; therefore, it is important to hire a Texas auto accident attorney to handle your case from the beginning. Our car wreck lawyers can prevent the insurance companies from gaining evidence they can use to deny your claim. We will also help maximize your case value for your insurance claim or lawsuit.
