What Happens If I Am Involved In An Accident With An Uninsured Or Underinsured Motorist?

The process of filing a claim requires a different approach for vehicle accidents caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist. Your insurance policy may become your primary recourse for compensation, meaning you must file a claim against your own insurer.

Even so, taking the same steps you would after an accident with insurance remains critical:

  • Report the accident to the police and request a copy of the accident report. It adds evidence to your claim.
  • Seek medical attention even if injuries are not apparent; some injuries present symptoms days or weeks later. It creates medical evidence to strengthen your claim.
  • Document the scene and gather witness statements, if possible. Credible statements can verify your account of the accident.
  • Notify your insurance company to initiate an underinsured motorist claim. Avoid making written or recorded statements when speaking with insurers.

You need not take this complex journey alone. A Talley, Turner, Stice & Bertman attorney can help you build a strong claim that leaves no opening for an unfair denial.
