California law requires that all drivers carry automobile insurance, but industry studies show that as much as 25% of California drivers have no auto insurance and many more don’t have enough insurance. If you are injured in an accident caused by a driver without insurance or without enough insurance, will you know how to protect yourself?
The financial implications of an automobile accident can be huge. Remember, when it comes to paying a claim for injuries caused by an uninsured or under-insured driver, YOUR OWN INSURANCE COMPANY IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE.
This is why it is critical that you enlist the advocacy of a knowledgeable San Diego car accident attorney to fight for your interests. In such cases, your insurance company may use all of the same tactics they would use to deny any other claim — even if you’ve been a loyal customer for years.
When was the last time you read your automobile insurance policy? I’m not talking about the declarations page where your coverages are summarized, I’m talking about the ENTIRE POLICY. Without reading the ENTIRE POLICY and KNOWING WHAT IT MEANS, how will you protect yourself in the event you are injured in an accident with an uninsured or under-insured driver?
Insurance policies are not written for the lay person to read and understand. Unless you have someone looking out for your best interests, how will you know if your auto policy will cover you in the event you are injured by an uninsured or under-insured driver?
If you are injured in a car accident caused by an uninsured or under-insured driver, you should immediately contact an experienced San Diego car accident lawyer to review your insurance policy and determine if there are other sources of insurance to compensate you. I have more than 30 years of legal experience and I have successfully handled many high value cases for clients who were involved in accidents with uninsured drivers.
