Springfield Underinsured Motorist Claims Attorneys
Though every state in the US requires drivers to carry some form of auto
insurance, the sad truth is that many of these minimum liability policies
do not provide enough coverage for many accidents. Individuals who are
injured in accidents with underinsured motorists may find themselves liable
for their own medical and auto repair expenses even though they were not
the cause of the accident.
Luckily, some affected individuals may be able to file underinsured motorist
claims with their insurance companies. If you or someone you love suffered
injuries in a
car accident with an underinsured motorist, contact the Springfield car accident lawyers
at Strong-Garner-Bauer, P.C. at (417) 855-2022.
Making a Claim
When an individual chooses to file an underinsured motorist claim, two
conditions are assumed to be true:
- The other motorist was at fault in the accident.
- The at-fault motorist did not have enough coverage to fully compensate
the other driver.
In other words, an individual’s insurance company usually will not
approve an underinsured motorist claim if the individual trying to file
the claim was at fault or if the other driver was at fault but had adequate
coverage to pay for the affected individual’s medical and auto repair expenses.
Individuals who meet the requirements should seek the assistance of a Springfield
underinsured motorist claim attorney to help the claim process go smoothly.
