Readers of this blog likely have some important questions about their rights and legal options after a car accident. People are often frustrated, mad and dealing with a great deal of pain after a crash, and they want to know where to turn for help and answers.
As upsetting as it can already be to get injured in a crash, it can be even more maddening when that accident involves an uninsured or underinsured motorist. Georgia laws require every driver to have adequate insurance coverage, but too many people would rather take their chances by foregoing this financial responsibility. Sadly, it is the victims of crashes with these drivers who end up paying for this reckless decision.
In many cases, it is not feasible to pursue significant — or even adequate — compensation from an uninsured or underinsured driver. If they cannot or choose not to pay for insurance, they will rarely be able to make payments for your injuries and property damage on their own.
This is why you may want to seriously consider speaking with an attorney at Mitchell & Shapiro LLP. We understand that there are other ways to pursue financial coverage for damages. For example, we can help you pursue the maximum payments from your insurance company. We can also identify other parties that may potentially be held liable for a crash, including auto manufacturers and other drivers, which can increase your chances of collecting payment.
Money cannot undo the pain and anxiety that you can experience after a crash. It can, however, help you cope with the aftermath and at least partially cover the costs of the accident.
If you have been injured in an accident with an uninsured motorist, you should know that there are legal resources that you can access to seek the compensation and support you deserve.
