Uninsured & Underinsured Motorists

An unfortunate repercussion of a sluggish U.S. economy is that many American have resorted to cutting costs as much as possible, even if those expenses are a legal necessity.

While the state of Illinois requires all drivers to have minimum amounts of liability insurance, there are still thousands of drivers on the road who drive without insurance. In fact, national studies have reported that approximately one in seven drivers on American roads and highways have no insurance. When they cause car accidents that injure others, victims run the risk of enduring additional financial consequences.

If you or a loved one has recently been injured in an accident caused by an uninsured motorist, it is of the utmost importance that you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer from Patel Law, PC as soon as possible.

Our firm is prepared to take alternative legal paths that can allow you recover your damages, including civil lawsuits filed against your insurance provider or directly against the negligent driver. We are also prepared to take these actions against drivers who are underinsured.

There are simply too many expenses and financial strains victims face after they have been injured in a car accident.
