If you were injured in a car accident that was caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other losses. Typically, those expenses are covered by the insurance of the at-fault driver.
However, what happens if the driver who caused the accident only carries the minimum liability insurance that is required by Tennessee law? What if the driver who caused the accident has no insurance policy, or what if the other driver fled the scene before you were able to request his or her insurance information?
If you suffered injuries in an accident that was caused by another driver, we can help you receive the compensation you need — even if the other driver was underinsured or uninsured.
At the Law Offices of Ogle, Elrod and Baril, PLLC, we fight aggressively to help clients in Knoxville and throughout the surrounding communities receive the compensation they deserve after auto accidents.
Who Will Pay For Your Bills And Damage?
In Tennessee, drivers are legally required to hold liability insurance in case they are involved in accidents. Even so, there are many uninsured drivers on the road. To help ensure accident victims are able to receive the compensation they need, many insurance policies offer coverage for accidents caused by uninsured or underinsured motorists.
Your own insurance policy may provide the compensation you deserve. However, because insurance companies make money by denying claims, it’s critical to work with an experienced lawyer who can help ensure your right to compensation is protected.
Our attorneys are committed to helping individuals receive the full and fair compensation available in uninsured or underinsured motorist claims.
