When You’ve Been Hit by an Uninsured Driver
It’s discouraging, even terrifying when you realize that someone who has just caused thousands of dollars in personal injury expenses and property damage does not have enough insurance, or perhaps no insurance at all, to cover those costs. Many drivers in Tennessee carry the state minimum of $25,000 in coverage and are not equipped to deal with a serious accident. Despite the law, many of them have no insurance at all.
The risk of encountering an uninsured driver or an underinsured driver is high, and medical expenses from a serious car accident can run into the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is not a battle that you want to fight alone. The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto have a combined 75 years of experience working with people who have been injured in car, truck or motorcycle accidents and will fight to ensure that their clients recover a full and fair compensation for their injuries.Negotiating With or Litigating Against Insurance Companies
Often when you suffer a personal injury as a result of an uninsured driver, you may be forced to deal with your own insurance company to get a proper recovery. Too frequently, this means that the company that has promised to be there when you need it most and to which you have paid countless dollars in premiums, becomes a roadblock in getting a monetary recovery and perhaps even proper treatment. The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto have helped thousands of people understand how to work with their insurance company following an injury-related accident. We guide you through the process of recovering needed compensation, or we take over as your advocate to deal directly with your insurer.
It is important to understand that being struck by an uninsured driver or an underinsured driver does not mean you will not get the money you need to pay for hospital bills or lost time from work. We educate, inform and counsel clients on the options available, and we can help you find avenues toward recovery.
