What to Do When Hit by an Uninsured Driver

Any time you’re in a car accident, it’s bound to be a stressful situation. No matter who was at fault, all those involved are at a risk of injury and expensive repairs. But, sometimes, these accidents are made more stressful, such as when you’re hit by an uninsured driver.

If this is your situation, consider reaching out to an experienced attorney from The Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg. We have years of experience with all types of car accident claims, including those involving uninsured drivers.

Contact Your Own Insurance Company

Dealing with an uninsured driver is difficult because it limits your options for compensation. You, of course, can’t file a third-party claim with their insurance company, which makes it difficult to get the compensation you need without going to court.

Fortunately, you may be able to avoid a lawsuit with your own insurance company. Wisconsin drivers must carry uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage protects drivers like you from difficult claims and a long legal battle.

If you have this coverage, you should be able to simply file a claim with your insurance company and notify them that you were injured by an uninsured driver. This insurance should cover your losses and get you on the path toward recovery.

Your Car Accident Lawsuit

If your uninsured motorist insurance doesn’t cover all of your expenses, you’ll have to take your claim to court. Your minimum insurance requirement will cover $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident, but that might not be enough.

Unfortunately, it can be tough getting that compensation. The defendant might not carry insurance because they can’t afford it. That makes getting the funds you need for your recovery more difficult.

However, a Wisconsin lawyer can help you through your claim. They can fight back for you, maximizing your award. Although it may take time to get the full amount you deserve, your lawyer can you give the best chance at recovering compensation.
