Being injured in an auto accident is a traumatic experience and one that can turn life upside-down in the blink of an eye. Unfortunately, some accidents are caused by uninsured or underinsured drivers whose automobile policy limits will not come close to covering the actual bills and expenses injured people have to deal with. In these cases, accident victims may be able to obtain compensation through their own underinsured / uninsured motorist policies.
Our attorneys can help. Contact Becker, French and Durkin today.
Our First Concern is Your Recovery
At Becker, French and Durkin we understand the frustration people experience when they are trying to deal with insurance companies. We know the tactics insurers use to avoid paying out on legitimate claims. We provide the kind of experience and skills that get you the kind of compensation you paid for when you purchased your policy.
Generally speaking, purchasing as much uninsured (UM) / underinsured motorist coverage as you can afford is the best way to protect yourself and your family. However, insurance companies have been known to try and deny the legitimate claims of people who purchased underinsured and uninsured motorist policies as well. If you have liability coverage, you already have uninsured motorist coverage. Underinsured motorist coverage is not required in the state of Wisconsin. Also, your UM coverage covers you even when you are not in your vehicle (i.e. if you are a passenger in another car and you are injured).
If you elected to purchase UM / UIM coverage on your policy, our attorneys can help you to navigate the process of filing a first-party claim against your own insurance company in order to pay for medical bills and other expenses that were not covered by the other driver's insurance.
