There are few things more jarring than a serious auto accident, which is why if you are someone who has recently been injured in one, you most likely now require financial compensation to help you recover. However, if you were struck by an uninsured motorist, you may not know the best step forward. Fortunately, our experienced Texas personal injury attorneys are here. Please read on to learn more about auto accidents with uninsured motorists and how our firm can help.
How do most auto accidents happen in Texas?
There are several different types of auto accidents, including mass transit accidents, car accidents, Uber/Lyft accidents, motorcycle accidents, and more. No matter the mode of transportation, auto accidents are most frequently caused by one thing: driver negligence. Some of the most common types of driver negligence include distracted driving (namely texting and driving), driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and speeding.
What should I do if I am in an accident with an uninsured motorist in Texas?
If you have been injured in an accident with an uninsured motorist, you are probably worried about the next step forward. Fortunately, as long as you have purchased uninsured motorist coverage, there is a very good chance you can file a claim directly with your insurance company. That being said, it is always best to do so with the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, as oftentimes, your insurance company will offer you far less than you actually deserve/need. Our firm can help you build a solid case that proves you were injured as a direct result of the uninsured motorist’s negligence.
How long do I have to sue after an accident with an uninsured motorist in Texas?
In Texas, people have to abide by what is known as the statute of limitations. Simply put, this means that you will have to file a lawsuit within a certain timeframe. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is two years. Do not make the mistake of putting off filing. Our firm will begin the claims process on your behalf as soon as you bring your case to our attention.
