What To Do After An Accident With An Underinsured Driver

The first thing to do after an accident with an underinsured driver is to check your own automobile insurance policy for proper coverage.

  • If you do have coverage: You can file a claim with your own insurance provider in addition to the one with the underinsured motorist's insurance provider. This adds complexity to your case, so an attorney can provide much-needed guidance.
  • If you do not have coverage: Check if you have coverage for any car that you own. If not, an attorney can determine the viability of filing a personal injury claim against the driver in addition to his or her insurance company.
