Bennington Uninsured/Underinsured Driver Accident Lawyers

The Best Uninsured/Underinsured Driver Accident Attorneys in Bennington

Bennington is one of the established economic hubs in Nebraska. The city is home to some of the busiest roads in the state, including Bennington road, which stretches across the city. The presence of major road networks in Bennington means accidents are common. When you are injured in an accident caused by another person's negligence, you expect them to take responsibility. In most cases, the at-fault party's insurance company covers the damages suffered by the victim. Unfortunately, some negligent drivers have no insurance or lack the minimum available coverage required to cover the costs of a victim's medical expenses and other damages.

If you have been injured in an accident caused by an underinsured or uninsured motorist in Bennington, get in touch with Bottlinger Law L.L.C. by calling (402) 505-8234. We have an experienced team of attorneys that can handle all types of collisions. We will give you various options that will help you recover compensation for the damages you have suffered.

Understanding Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage

According to Nebraska insurance laws, all motorists are required to have a minimum liability insurance policy and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Therefore, if you get involved in an accident with a motorist who has underinsured their car, you will likely have their insurance policy to file against. If the coverage does not suffice and you have an underinsured motorist coverage policy, your insurance company should compensate you for the balance.

Uninsured coverage refers to any situation where the driver doesn't have insurance. This includes cases where the driver's license has expired or when they have never had one in the first place. Uninsured coverage might also come into play when you fail to identify a policy that covers your injuries. This means that if you sustain injuries in a hit-and-run accident and the driver escapes the scene, you might not have options for receiving compensation. However, if you have uninsured motorist coverage, your insurance company should compensate you for the damages inflicted.

Filing a Claim Against Your Insurance Company

Filing a claim against your insurance company can be frustrating. Insurance companies make their money by paying out as little in claims as possible.

There are several strategies that predatory insurance companies use to deny your claim. Some of them include claims that:

  • You were at fault for the crash
  • You did not follow a procedural requirement
  • The injuries you sustained were not caused by the motor vehicle accident
  • The claim doesn't meet all the necessary requirements

Besides, insurance companies might fail to provide proper compensation or coverage. They might also ask for unnecessary paperwork or try to find unjustified reasons to reject your claim. In Nebraska, this is considered bad faith insurance. In such cases, you will need a Bennington injury lawyer to help you negotiate with your insurance company and find an amicable solution. Our attorneys are well-versed in uninsured accident claims and know how to handle insurance companies denying the claim.
