Willowbrook Uninsured Motorist Injury Accident Lawyer
Collecting from Uninsured Motorist Attorney Serving Darien, Westmont and Downers Grove
While automobile insurance is mandatory in Illinois, many drivers do not have insurance or are underinsured. When you are injured in a car accident and an uninsured or underinsured driver is at fault, we can file a claim against your own automobile insurance. Uninsured motorist coverage is required in Illinois and is part of the “full coverage” in your insurance policy. At the Law Office of Martoccio & Martoccio, we are experienced in handling uninsured and underinsured motorist claims. We can assist you in getting as much compensation as possible for your injuries.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Accidents
There are several different circumstances that can lead to an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim including:
- If you are involved in an accident with someone who does not have any insurance
- If you are involved in an accident with someone whose insurance is not sufficient to cover your damages
- If you are involved in a hit and run accident and the driver’s identity cannot be determined
- If you are involved in an accident with a bicyclist or pedestrian
In cases where it is determined that the party who caused the accident is uninsured, we will need to immediately file a claim with your insurance company. If the party at fault is insured, we will first file a claim with the liable party’s insurance company. If your claim exceeds the maximum limits of the liable party’s insurance company, we can file an additional claim for the difference with your own insurance company. Our firm has decades of experience working with insurance companies and handling car accident personal injury cases. We make sure our clients get the compensation they need and deserve for their injuries.
