Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Accidents in San Antonio
You have rights. Our lawyers can fight for them.
Car accidents involving drivers without insurance in San Antonio happen far more often than you might realize. Even though drivers in Texas are required to have insurance, it’s not usual to have a rear-end accident involving an uninsured driver on East Commerce Street or I-10.
And even if the other driver has insurance, that doesn’t mean you will automatically be compensated for all your accident-related expenses. In many cases, many drivers don’t have enough insurance to cover a head-on collision on Broadway Street or anywhere else in the city.
That's why it's critical that you contact Tracey & Fox. Our San Antonio car accident lawyers have extensive experience dealing with crashes involving uninsured or underinsured drivers. We know how the legal system works and what to do to get you the compensation you deserve.
We'll examine all options
All drivers in Texas are required to have auto insurance with minimum coverage of $30,000 for injuries to any individual person in one accident and $60,000 total for all injuries caused in one accident. But for various reasons, some drivers break the law and don’t have any insurance at all.
If drivers have only the minimum coverage, they are underinsured. The damages from a car accident can easily exceed the minimum liability limits set by law. So you can only collect up to the amount of coverage on the policy.
Insurance carriers are required to offer you uninsured or underinsured motorist protection (UM/UIM). This coverage is optional, but can help cover the damages you suffer if you are involved in a car accident.
If you declined this coverage, there may be other options. For example, we can try to recover damages directly from the at-fault driver, though that driver may have limited assets. Or a third party may be held partially responsible, such as the manufacturer of a defective automobile.
