Baltimore Uninsured Motorist Attorneys Help You Secure Compensation When the Other Driver is Uninsured
Don’t let an uninsured motorist become your financial headache
When you’re in an accident, you want to exchange as little information as possible with the other driver, but one thing you definitely need is each other’s insurance information. Vehicle damage, personal injury and other losses can add up quickly, and chances are the other driver doesn’t have the cash on hand to compensate you. Don’t let an uninsured driver stand between you and the compensation you deserve for your injuries and damages. The uninsured motorist accident attorneys at Mallon & McCool, LLC, are ready to fight for your right to compensation.
How uninsured car accident claims work
If you were hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, you will receive money from your own insurance company. This seems counterintuitive, since you were not at fault for the accident, but your insurance company is obligated to pay for damages as long as you pay your premiums.
This is a conflict of interest for your insurance company. They may also focus on vehicular damage and not your medical costs, or make other losses seem minimized in order to limit how much they must pay.
If you’re involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, it can be invaluable to bring in an auto accident attorney who will provide fair representation of your claim, to avoid any bias that might otherwise occur. Since the attorney isn’t obliged to pay for your damages, they will look at all possible reasons of compensation, including:
- Personal injuries — Any injuries you sustain during the crash or as a result of the crash, like chronic back or neck pain
- Vehicular damage — Costs to cover repairs or replacement of your vehicle
- Loss of income — If you cannot go to work due to injury or lack of transportation, you can be compensated for lost wages
- Mental distress — You may be eligible for treatment of any anguish or traumatic stress after an accident
What to do if you suspect a motorist is uninsured
The best way to avoid the hassle of an uninsured motorist is to help keep them off the roads. If you’ve been involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist, or even if you haven’t but you suspect someone is driving without insurance, you can file a claim for free with the Insurance Compliance Division of the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration. The ICD will follow up with a confirmation of your claim, and request proof of insurance from the driver in question.
If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist, taking this action can help bolster your case with written documentation of the other driver’s negligence.
