Riverside Uninsured Motorist Lawyer

riverside-car-accident-attonrneyAuto accidents are, of course, commonplace in California. Although all drivers are required by state law to have auto insurance, the reality is that many drivers in California are uninsured or underinsured (don’t have enough insurance to cover the damages they caused). If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident in California in which the negligent party was uninsured, Heiting & Irwin may be able to help you out. If the negligent party in an accident carried a minimal or insufficient insurance policy, we may also be able to ensure that you are fully compensated through your own underinsured automobile policy.

Once you have left the scene of an accident, make sure to notify your insurance carrier as soon as possible; and go to a medical provider if you have been injured. Even if you do not feel any immediate injury, it will be worth it to have a doctor double check. It is very important that a qualified health care professional examine you, document your injuries and begin indicated treatment. Make sure you point out all areas that were hurt or affected in the accident.

Also, photos of the scene, the vehicles, and your injuries will be very important. As soon as possible after the accident, contact your attorneys, Heiting & Irwin, as it is best to obtain facts, information, materials and witnesses while the information is still fresh. It is important to permit us to do a prompt investigation. You may have to report the accident to the Department of Motor Vehicles. We always suggest that you carry the maximum available underinsured injury coverage. It costs pennies and can make a very great difference in your financial recovery.

A detailed list of what to do after a car accident along with a checklist is available for your convenience. You may want to keep a copy of the checklist in your glove compartment should you unfortunately be in a car accident.
