Uninsured Motorists Lawyer

No matter if your accident was caused by a drunk driver, driving while distracted, or other negligent behaviors, we will be there to ensure that the negligent driver pays for their reckless and dangerous acts.

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Lawyers: Frenkel & Frenkel

Although the law requires that all Texas drivers have auto liability insurance, it is still true that one in five drivers in Texas don’t have any insurance. When drivers do not have car insurance, you (and additional insured drivers) are put at increased risk for failing to recover money for damages and medical bills after an accident. Without any adequate insurance coverage, there can be no expectation that an at-fault driver will be able to pay out the damages that are rightfully owed.

Why Choose Us in an Uninsured Motorist Injury Case?

Frenkel & Frenkel is not an average law firm. Over their years in practice, the trial lawyers at the firm have achieved many high-value, multi-million dollar settlements and jury awards in the most complex personal injury cases. Our founding attorneys have each been listed in D Magazine among the Best Lawyers in Dallas and as Top Attorneys by FW Magazine. They are each rated 10 (for “Superb”) by Avvo, a respected law firm rating service based on peer votes—not ad money.

Underinsured Motorists

Texas law states that a driver's minimum liability insurance is $30,000 per person and $60,000 per accident. Unfortunately, sometimes, your medical bills alone can exceed $30,000. How can you recover if the person who caused the crash had just the minimum coverage?

A Starting Point for Uninsured Accidents— UM/UIM Insurance

Even if you’re the most responsible driver in the world, you won’t be protected from someone without car insurance or someone who only has the state minimum amount of coverage from crashing into your car. You should consider UM/UIM (uninsured/underinsured) auto coverage. With UM/UIM coverage, you can recover damages even if the person who ran into you doesn’t have insurance or if their insurance limits are insufficient to cover your medical bills and damages.

Steps to take after an accident with an uninsured driver

If you have been severely injured in a car accident involving an uninsured or underinsured driver, you may wonder what your options are for covering medical bills and other associated costs. Here are some steps you can take in this situation:

Seek medical attention

Your priority should always be your health. Seek medical attention immediately and follow the advice of your doctors and healthcare professionals.

Consult with an attorney

It’s a good idea to consult with an attorney specializing in personal injury cases to understand your legal options and protect your rights.

Document everything

Keep detailed records of all medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs associated with your injury. This documentation will be vital if you decide to pursue legal action.
