Here at the Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC, our Toledo car accident lawyers pursue car accident claims for those that have been injured in an auto accident because of someone without insurance. Even though it is Ohio law that every driver must be covered with liability insurance, there are still many people out there who are driving without any form of auto insurance. When this happens, the victim may have a difficult time recovering money for their medical bills, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering. If this has happened to you, call a Toledo uninsured accident lawyer today.
If you have been hit by someone with no insurance, it is very important that you look into your own car insurance declarations page so that you can see if you have uninsured motorist coverage included in your policy. Uninsured motorist coverage is a type of insurance that protects both you and your family in the event that you are injured because of a driver who does not have insurance. If you do not actually have this insurance but a family member who is living at the same residence as you has this, you may still be able to file a claim. Included in this coverage are not only car accidents but bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents as well.
Uninsured motorist benefit coverage is often sold as a part of a standard auto insurance policy, so many people are unaware that they even have it. The policy that provides the uninsured motorist benefits can be an auto insurance policy issued to the injured person, a member of the injured person’s family or household, or some other policy.
The best thing for someone to have is an experienced Toledo uninsured motorist claim attorney looking into your accident claim and reviewing your insurance contract immediately after your accident. In these types of cases, there are very strict time limits for making a claim. If you have been involved in an Ohio car accident with an Ohio uninsured motorist, we urge you to contact an uninsured accident lawyer in Toledo as soon as you are able.
Our lawyers will look into your case as well as any insurance policies of you or a family member to determine if you can file an uninsured motorist claim. Our office has been successful in obtaining settlements for our clients that have been hit by a negligent driver who was uninsured. We will work to do the same for you as well.
Our office handles cases under our no fee promise. This means that unless we win a settlement for you, there are no attorney fees.
