Practice Area : Underinsured Motorist Insurance Coverage
The law firm of Gillin, Jacobson, Ellis, Larsen & Lucey has over thirty years of legal experience with claims involving auto accidents and underinsured motorists in the greater San Francisco Bay Area and throughout Northern California.
Most Californians are protected from underinsured and uninsured drivers under their legally required auto insurance policies. If a California driver involved in an accident with an underinsured driver, the victim must seek restitution from someone who is probably unable to pay. In this case, the victim’s own insurance company is then legally required to pay for the damages.
Often, however, many California drivers don’t even realize they have uninsured motorist coverage as part of their insurance policy. If you have underinsured motorist coverage, it can provide you with a much higher case value than that initially offered by your insurance company. Many people feel that they are protected by their insurance companies or are comforted by assurances from other drivers involved in the accident that the damages will be covered. But only with professional, experienced legal assistance can a driver recover what he or she is truly owed.
It is estimated that as many as 20% of all drivers in California drive without any auto insurance, and another 20% of California drivers carry minimal insurance at best. The chance of being involved in an accident with an underinsured motorist in California is very real, particularly in the San Francisco Bay Area.
