According to the Insurance Research Council, as many as one quarter (25 percent) of all drivers on California roads have no insurance at all. Many more have only the minimum $15,000 liability policy, which is completely inadequate to address even a mild car crash with a minimum of injuries. This means that many people who have suffered serious injuries in a car crash may be facing a fight not only with someone else’s insurance, but with their own as well.
At moments like this, it is important to work with a lawyer that can help you take action and hold insurance companies responsible for the money they owe you. Understanding the differences between insurance policies is our job, and we have been doing it for over 25 years. At the law offices of Bentley & More LLP, our highly experienced Orange County and Irvine uninsured motorist attorneys will fight to get you the compensation you need.
PROTECT YOURSELF WITH BENTLEY & MORE LLP
When the driver who causes your accident is uninsured or does not have enough insurance, i.e. underinsured, it may be your insurance company that is supposed to make up the difference. Your insurance policy and coverage are extremely important. Often, we see insurance policies that do not have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. This is an unfortunate mistake. Your insurance coverage will and can make a tremendous difference in a car accident. Do not cut costs and eliminate this type of insurance coverage from your policy. After a car accident, it is important to contact your insurance company to advise them of your claim. Even though this uninsured or underinsured coverage is for your protection, your own insurance company may not always see things your way. Our lawyers know how to handle uninsured motorist claims.
