Seattle Underinsured Driver Accident Lawyer

A Seattle underinsured driver accident lawyer can help you seek the compensation you deserve from the insurance company or the at-fault driver. If you’ve ever been involved in a car accident, then you know how complex and frustrating the insurance claims process can be. Imagine going through the process when the person who hit you is an underinsured driver. Not only is the process difficult, but the insurance company is now telling you that the driver doesn’t have enough coverage to pay for your injuries or the damage to your vehicle.

What is an Underinsured Driver?

An underinsured driver is a driver that has coverage that is below the Washington state required minimum coverage. Washington state requires the following coverage:

  • $25,000 of bodily injury or death of 1 person in any 1 accident.
  • $50,000 of bodily injury or death of any 2 people in any 1 accident.
  • $10,000 of injury to or destruction of property of others in any 1 accident.

How Can an Attorney Help My Underinsured Driver Accident Case?

A Seattle underinsured driver accident attorney can:

  • Gather evidence to present to insurers and in court such as eye-witness testimony, accident scene recreation, and expert witness testimony to prove that the other driver was at-fault for the accident.
  • Gather and present copies of your medical bills or car repair bills to the cost of your injuries or damage to your vehicle.
  • Handle all deadlines and requests for more information.
  • Represent you in negotiations and settlement talks with insurers.

Ultimately, recovery from an accident involving an underinsured or uninsured driver will likely come from your own insurance company, through underinsured/uninsured motorist benefits. However, just because you have a policy with them doesn’t mean that your insurance company has your best interests at heart. Insurance companies are always looking to minimize payouts when possible and that includes these types of cases. Hiring a personal injury law firm to handle your claim is the best way to get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.

You should look for a Seattle underinsured driver accident lawyer that has experience in dealing with large insurers and knows all their tricks. Attorneys with this experience will have developed techniques that will maximize your recovery from the little coverage that the at-fault driver has.
