It is hard enough to deal with insurance companies when the parties involved in a car accident are well insured. It becomes increasingly difficult to reach a fair settlement when there is one or more underinsured motorist involved. You want to make sure you have an experienced lawyer on your side, so you can come up with a plan to take care of your bills.
As experienced litigators dedicated to personal injury law, our Seattle underinsured driver lawyers are not afraid to put the pressure on the insurance companies involved. Whether you have bills beyond the Washington coverage minimum of $25,000 or you have no insurance at all, we will prepare your case for court, and put the pressure to seek a favorable resolution. Also important to note is the fact that in order to obtain benefits on a UM/UIM claim, you may have to sue your own insurance company.
Not all car accidents are the responsibility of one of the drivers involved, and if you or the other driver is uninsured or underinsured, you want to explore all your options for coverage. Possible third parties that could have contributed to your accident include the state, architect or engineer responsible for the inadequate traffic controls or highway design defects, as well as bars and restaurants that may have served a patron too much alcohol.
Time Limitations for a UM/UIM Claim
If you are considering filing an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim, it is important that you know that there are time limitations during which a claim can be filed. Once the time period has passed, you will be unable to file a claim. This is why it is so important to enlist an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.
