Auto Accident Lawyers : Un/Underinsured Motorist Claims
Columbus, Dublin, New Albany and all of Ohio
We represented the administrator of an 18-year-old high school student who was killed in a single-vehicle crash. Liability coverage on the driver was denied, however, because the owner of the vehicle had not given the driver permission to take the vehicle. On the recommendation of a family friend (a former client of ours), the divorced parents of the passenger hired Robert W. Kerpsack Co., L.P.A., to prosecute the wrongful death claims. Our investigation revealed that the decedent was a resident of the separate households of both parents; therefore, we were successful in recovering the limits of uninsured motorist coverage under automobile insurance policies maintained by each of the parents.
Uninsured and underinsured motorist claims can be very complicated and difficult to resolve, regardless of who was at fault in an auto accident. Insurance companies have lawyers and adjusters on staff whose jobs are to limit the payout on insurance claims and to convince claimants to settle for as little as possible.
