When A Negligent Driver Lacks Enough Insurance To Compensate You Adequately

A traffic accident that results in serious injury or death is traumatic; it brings losses that can seem unjust. Steps to recovery will include:

  • An investigation into the causes of the accident
  • Review of medical reports and/or evidence of losses to a family after a fatality
  • Preparation of legal action against any party or parties whose negligence caused or contributed to the accident

A prompt consultation with a personal injury attorney can help you maximize your recovery of compensation after you have been injured or lost a loved one in a car, truck or motorcycle crash. Your case may include recovery from a negligent party’s insurance policy. Unfortunately, this expected safety net is sometimes insufficient. A case requires more extensive legal work if the other driver does not have enough insurance.

Get Legal Counsel Promptly After A Serious Injury, A Hit-And-Run Or Other Challenging Circumstances

Ideally, the other driver’s insurance should be a source of compensation after another driver’s actions were the cause of the accident. Drivers without adequate insurance do travel our roads in Delaware and when a crash involves one of them, you may need to tap into your own uninsured and underinsured motorist (UI/UIM) coverage. Your insurer may attempt to block your efforts. An experienced lawyer at our firm can help you pursue compensation through your UI/UIM coverage, even when there are complications such as the following:

Hit-and-run accidents: The identity of the other driver may be hard to track down after leaving the scene of the accident. When a hit-and-run has harmed a client of Potter, Carmine & Associates, we communicate with law enforcement agencies and insurers as we determinedly seek relief for the injured.

Accidents involving stolen vehicles: Liability may be complex when the negligent driver is a thief driving a stolen car or truck. Pursuit of compensation may involve multiple insurance policies. The final outcome may be strong for our client, but there may be delays as insurers attempt to pass off responsibility to each other. Our firm brings 40 years of experience to the table. We are ready to take on legal challenges for our clients’ sake.
