An automobile accident is a stressful and chaotic situation for anyone. For those involved in a vehicle collision on Arizona’s roadways and the other motorist is uninsured or underinsured, claims instantly become more complicated and additional stress must be endured.
Phoenix auto accident attorney, Jerrold A. Mayro, is able to handle the complexities of an uninsured or underinsured motorist claimand willing to fight diligently to obtain the compensation you are entitled to for your damages.
Difference Between Uninsured or Underinsured Motorists
Uninsured motorist refers to a driver who does not have any insurance coverage to compensate other drivers in the event of an auto accident caused by his wrongdoing. Underinsured motorist refers to a driver who has limited insurance coverage so his policy will not adequately cover all of the damages caused by an accident of his wrongdoing.
When complex, uninsured motorist claims arise, you need an experienced auto accident attorney who can navigate the system and hold negligent parties and insurance companies accountable for damages inflicted. Common complications arising in uninsured motorist claims include:
- The immense resources insurance companies have at their disposal
- The immense amount of experience insurance companies have in uninsured motorist claims
- Your insurance company may even defend the uninsured driver and claim they were not responsible for causing the vehicle collision
