Schaumburg, IL Car Accident Claim Attorneys
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Accident Lawyers in Cook County, DuPage County, and Surrounding Collar Counties
When you are in an automobile accident and someone else is at fault, the at-fault driver’s insurance is responsible for compensating you for your injuries and property damage. If the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured, however, you have to go another route. In Illinois, drivers are required to carry their own uninsured motorist insurance. So if the at-fault driver has no insurance or is underinsured, your own insurance company may be responsible for paying out damages on your claim.
Insurance companies often fail to fully compensate accident victims even when those victims are their own customers. At Grauer & Kriegel, LLC, we are experienced in handling uninsured and underinsured accident claims. We fight to ensure that our clients obtain maximum compensation for their injuries even when the responsible party is uninsured or underinsured.
Handling Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Claims in Illinois
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident, and the driver is uninsured or underinsured (does not have enough insurance to cover your damages), you are entitled to recover from your insurance carrier depending on what you have for insurance coverage.
As of January 1, 2015, Illinois law requires car owners to purchase a minimum of $25,000/person and $50,000/ occurrence of uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance. This type of coverage is designed for the purpose of obtaining some type of recovery, but you cannot trust that your insurance company will have your best interests at heart. Our attorneys have over four decades of experience dealing with insurance companies and fighting to make sure they treat our clients fairly and provide the full compensation an accident warrants. We will advise you on your legal rights and help you make informed decisions throughout the legal process.
