Tarzana Uninsured Motorist Accident Lawyer

Under California law, every driver is required to have auto insurance. However, there are drivers who can’t afford it or are unaware of their obligations and drive without purchasing insurance coverage.

When you’re in an accident with an uninsured motorist who’s at fault, many questions arise. If you’re wondering where your compensation may come from as medical bills and time away from work pile up, a Tarzana uninsured motorist accident attorney can help. Contact LA Century Law to speak with our car accident attorneys in Tarzana.

Who Is Considered an Uninsured Motorist?

As of 2019, 16.6% of drivers in California were driving without insurance, as reported by the Insurance Information Institute. This is significantly higher than the national average of 12.6%. So it’s safe to say that there’s a one in six chance that the driver whose car collided with your car in California is uninsured.

Although the term “uninsured motorist” might seem self-explanatory, there are some situations which you may not realize fall into this category.

  1. No insurance: Any motorist who neglected to get auto insurance is uninsured.
  2. Driver not covered: At times, the insurance policy for a certain vehicle may only cover certain drivers. If the driver who collided with you was not one of them, the vehicle is considered uninsured.
  3. Stolen car: If the car has been stolen, its policy may not cover the injuries and damages caused by an accident. In this case, the car is considered uninsured.
  4. Out of business: If the insurance company goes out of business while your claim is pending, then the car is considered uninsured.

What Are the Minimum Auto Insurance Requirements in California?

California requires motorists to possess liability insurance before registering a vehicle and has certain minimum requirements when you buy a policy. Each policy must have the following coverage:

  • $15,000 coverage for bodily injury or death of one person.
  • $30,000 coverage for bodily injury or death of more than one individual in the vehicle.
  • $5,000 coverage for property damage to other vehicles.

By law, you must be offered the following types of coverage by your insurance company. However, you can sign a waiver that says you turned down the offer.

  • Uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage, equivalent to your liability coverage limits
  • Underinsured motorist coverage, which has different limits
  • Uninsured motorist property damage coverage, which has a $3,500 limit.

Using Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Purchasing uninsured motorist coverage is highly recommended. It covers you in all the situations in which a car can be considered uninsured. Here are some things you can keep in mind regarding uninsured motorist coverage:

  1. When you file an uninsured motorist claim, you have to prove that the other driver was at fault in the accident.
  2. You also have to prove that the other driver was uninsured.
  3. It’s best to file your claim as soon as possible, or you might not meet the insurance company’s deadline.
  4. If your insurance company isn’t covering your medical bills and property damage bills, you may have recourse to a civil lawsuit. The jury in a civil lawsuit might award you compensation even if you were partially at fault.

What Is an Underinsured Motorist?

Keep in mind that the minimum insurance requirements in California are not that high, as a result of which a motorist might be underinsured even if they are not totally uninsured.

For example, if there were four occupants in a car and the insurance policy has a maximum of $30,000 coverage, then this may not be enough to cover everyone’s medical bills. In cases where the motorist who collided with you is underinsured, your own insurance company might cover you, or you can file a civil lawsuit.

After a Crash With an Uninsured Motorist, How Can a Lawyer Help?

When you’re in an accident with an uninsured motorist, it’s best to get in touch with a lawyer who will be able to help you file a claim with your own insurance company or file a civil lawsuit.

Although filing an insurance claim may sound easy, it may turn out to be more complicated than you thought if a dispute arises. If you omit certain crucial documents or your claim goes in late, you may not get all the compensation you need and deserve.

Having a lawyer on your side will ensure that things get done in a timely manner and that your claim doesn’t fall through the cracks. Plus, having a lawyer will most likely increase the amount of compensation you receive.

If it turns out that your insurance company is not going to cover you in a case of uninsured driving, you’ll have to file a civil lawsuit, and the process of doing this is quite complex. A lawyer is highly recommended to protect your case throughout court proceedings.

Uninsured Motorist Accident FAQs

What if I can’t afford a lawyer?

Keep in mind that you will not have to pay us until we win your case. It’s only when you receive compensation for your injuries that you’ll need to pay your legal bills.

Will my case be settled or go to trial?

Your lawyer will do their best to negotiate a fair settlement for your case out of court. But if this is not possible, then your case may go to trial. A caveat is that there may not be much in assets to be awarded from the defendant should they lose.

Marchelle Y

Attorney Daneshrad is very professional and courteous. I called him after being involved in a rear ender. I didn’t know anything about anything when it came to the process for making a claim after a car accident. Everyone at his office including Jennifer did everything in their power to make sure I was taken care of.

They made doctors appointments and regularly called to check-in on me. We ended up having to file a lawsuit. Three months after we did, attorney Daneshrad called me with great news! We had a settlement offer. It was for a lot more than I could have imagined. It has been three weeks since the settlement and he still calls me to check in on my injuries. You can tell he really cares about. He isn’t just about the numbers. Thank you attorney daneshrad! And happy holidays!
