Uninsured and Underinsured Driver Accidents In Oregon

Being injured in an accident can be especially frustrating when the person who caused the crash is uninsured or doesn’t have enough insurance to cover your medical expenses and other damages. Many victims of uninsured or underinsured driver accidents wonder where to turn to find the help they need. Whether your injury occurred in Keizer, Woodburn, Albany, or Dallas, our auto accident attorneys at Johnson and Taylor, LLC can help you recover compensation for your medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Filing An Uninsured Or Underinsured Driver Claim With Your Insurance Company

Oregon law requires motorists to carry liability insurance in the amount of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per auto accident to cover bodily injury to others. Unfortunately, many drivers on the road don’t have auto insurance or carry the bare minimum. Often, these amounts may not be enough to cover your medical bills or lost wages if you’re seriously injured and unable to work.

Ensuring you have adequate amounts of UM/UIM (uninsured/underinsured) and PIP (Personal Injury Protection) on your own auto insurance policy can be a lifesaver in the event of an accident with an uninsured, underinsured, or hit-and-run driver. Our Salem personal injury attorneys can help you file a claim with your insurance company and work to obtain the maximum compensation you need and deserve for your injuries and damages.

It’s important to keep in mind that even your own insurance company doesn’t have your best interests at heart. Most insurers try to pay victims as little as possible or even deny claims altogether, and it can get even more complicated when your medical insurance company becomes involved. Our accident lawyers know how to deal with insurance companies. We ensure that all required deadlines are met and present solid evidence to back up your claim. We aggressively negotiate on your behalf to help you get the full benefits you may be entitled to.
