Victim Of An Accident Involving An Uninsured/Underinsured Driver?
Maryland law requires all drivers to carry adequate auto insurance. Yet far too many people get behind the wheel without upholding this important obligation. And those who opt for the bare minimum coverage can end up shortchanging others if they’re at fault in an accident.
Have you been the victim of an uninsured driver? Or involved in an accident with an underinsured driver? The Law Office of Christine Saverda Nielson, P.A., can fight for you. Attorney Nielson brings more than two decades of personal injury experience to these often challenging cases. Known as a “bulldog” among her peers, she’s not shy about standing up to insurance companies and opposing parties. You can count on her for tenacious representation.
What Happens In These Cases
If the other driver was at fault, but they don’t have insurance (or enough coverage), you still have options. Your own insurance policy likely contains uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM). Under these provisions, your insurance will help cover your losses, essentially stepping into the shoes of the other driver’s insurance company. You may be entitled to even greater compensation if you opted for an enhanced underinsured motorist (EUIM) policy, a type of expanded coverage unique to Maryland.
Getting the full compensation you deserve, however, can quickly become an uphill battle. You can’t count on your insurance company to go to bat for you. Nor should you accept their determinations of fault and claim value without question. You need an experienced lawyer on your side to advocate for your best interests in an uninsured accident claim.
Attorney Nielson can help you build a strong case from the ground up. She will take the aggressive action necessary to seek the maximum compensation you deserve.
You May Still Recover Compensation In Hit-And-Run Accidents
If someone slams into you (or your parked vehicle) and takes off, you’re in the same boat as the victim of an uninsured driver. Perpetrators often get away with hit-and-runs because police officers rarely have the time or resources to devote to a full-scale investigation.
As a former ATF agent (for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms), Ms. Nielson knows how to conduct a thorough investigation. She will go the extra mile to help you locate the culprit and hold them responsible. And if they can’t be found, she can help you pursue a UIM claim so you aren’t left empty-handed.
