Helping You Obtain Compensation
The Memphis area has the highest percentage of uninsured drivers in the country. This presents complications when it comes to obtaining compensation for an accident caused by an uninsured driver, but you may still have options.
In the hands of an experienced personal injury attorney, UIM coverage is a very useful tool. It can be used to obtain compensation for a hit-and-run accident or when the other driver does not have enough coverage to cover your losses. UM/UIM can also be employed if you are a passenger in a vehicle, or a pedestrian or bicyclist who has been hit by a vehicle.
George B. Ready has successfully represented many people in car wreck cases in DeSoto County, northern Mississippi and western Tennessee. Mr. Ready will work tirelessly to analyze the insurance coverage issues in your case, in order to maximize your compensation from all possible sources.
UM/UIM Coverage In Hit-And-Run Accidents
Victims of hit-and-run accidents often think that they have no recourse. Police are rarely able to catch the drivers responsible for hit-and-runs, and when they do, the driver is often uninsured or underinsured anyway. However, we encourage hit-and-run crash victims to get in touch with us. You may be able to obtain compensation under your own insurance policy’s uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. Let us review your insurance policy and help you understand your options for getting money to cover medical bills, lost wages and other costs.
Keep in mind that there are different types of hit-and-run accidents. In some cases, no collision may have taken place. Perhaps you swerved to avoid colliding with a reckless driver, only to run into a parked car or drive off the road and suffer injuries. You may have options.
Why You Should Hire A Lawyer
Insurance companies often play hardball in car accident cases, particularly with policyholders who are attempting to obtain settlements on their own. With an experienced lawyer on your side, you can be assured that your rights and interests will be protected. The Law Office of George B. Ready will provide vigorous representation designed to obtain full and complete compensation for your losses. We are here to listen to your questions and to serve you.
