Exploring All Options To Secure Full Compensation
While the state of California makes it a legal requirement for all drivers to have a minimum amount of liability insurance, there are still numerous drivers on the public roads and highways who are underinsured or have no insurance coverage whatsoever. National statistics report that an estimated one out of every seven drivers is uninsured. The California Department of Insurance estimates that these rates may be even higher in the Golden State.
If a negligent, careless or reckless driver has injured you in a car accident, you shouldn’t be financially responsible for covering the costs associated with the collision. Far too often, however, car crash victims find themselves on the hook for these expenses. When the at-fault driver is underinsured or not insured at all, you could bear the burden of these costs. Don’t shoulder this burden alone. You may have options, and I, David T. Duncan, can help.
Hit By An Uninsured Or Underinsured Motorist?
For nearly a decade, I have represented car accident victims who are struggling with a variety of legal problems, including uninsured/underinsured motorist claims. Other personal injury attorneys may refuse to these types of cases because they are too complex, but I will not be deterred. Throughout Pleasanton and the surrounding area, I am known for my ability to take on intricate claims and win.
I invite you to contact me before you speak with your insurance provider about your situation. When you file an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim, it’s your car insurance company that is responsible for paying out your damages. Insurance companies are fierce adversaries when their profits are on the line. As your advocate, I will do everything in my power to secure the full and fair compensation you deserve under California law.
I can also help you identify alternative forms of compensation to supplement your settlement. Depending on your financial circumstances, you may be entitled to receive compensation from:
- Your health insurance policy
- MedPay coverage
- Your collision coverage
- Claims against other parties
As a skilled personal injury attorney, I am able to identify strong claims that other lawyers may overlook. For example, you may have the standing to file another claim if faulty brakes or shoddy road conditions contributed to your accident. You may have more legal options than you realize. Do not lose hope. Your case might not be as bleak as you assume.
