If you have been injured in a car accident caused by a driver who did not have insurance or did not have enough insurance to compensate you for your injuries, you may be entitled to make an uninsured or underinsured motorist (UIM) claim with your own auto insurance company.
Uninsured Motorist Claim Denialed in California?
If your UIM claim has been denied or delayed, you have a right to take legal action. At the law firm of Hiepler & Hiepler, our Ventura uninsured motorist claim lawyers help clients in California and beyond get the UIM benefits they deserve from their insurance companies.
Demanding Good-Faith Treatment From Auto Insurance Companies
When you pay a premium to an insurance company, that company owes you a duty of good faith. That means that when you make a claim, the company is required to treat you fairly, process your claim promptly and pay you the benefits you are contractually entitled to receive.
Unfortunately, in some cases, auto insurance companies illegitimately deny uninsured and underinsured motorist claims or drag out the process for months and even years.
Even if you have already gone to court and gotten a verdict for an amount that is more than the other driver's insurance coverage — which should be a fairly clear-cut case — your insurance company may delay paying out on your claim, causing you unnecessary hardship.
