If you were injured in an accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, our attorneys work to establish who was at fault for your accident, examine your existing insurance coverage and establish a proper plan to get you the appropriate compensation for your injuries.

In this type of case, the at-fault driver cannot be identified, leaving victims with no insurance recourse outside of their own policy.
