Underinsured Compensation Claims in Illinois

Dedicated personal injury attorneys helping clients obtain compensation for accidents in Libertyville, Arlington Heights, Wheaton, Itasca, and Chicago.

Every year, thousands of car accidents occur in the state of Illinois. Unfortunately, many of them result in devastating injuries that significantly impact the financial and emotional stability of victims and their families. The devastating nature of an accident is even more complex when the responsible party does not maintain enough insurance to make you whole again. If you or your loved ones are financially strained as a result of a motor vehicle accident and your compensation may be limited due to the insurance policy limits of the responsible party, contact Newland & Newland, LLP for a risk free initial consultation.

Planning for an Accident: You May Have Coverage

Many individuals do not plan for the "what ifs" of an accident until it is too late. However, luckily, insurance companies sometimes help you unknowingly plan for an accident. This is because insurance agents typically offer policies that they believe will provide you with the maximum amount of protection. One way this occurs is by selling your family underinsured motorist coverage with your policy. If your policy contains underinsured motorist coverage, you may be able to obtain compensation by filing a claim against your own insurance policy. However, the assistance an attorney is recommended as this method should not necessarily be first avenue to pursue.

Filing a Claim Against the Negligent Party

As with any personal injury action, you may be able to file a personal injury claim
against an individual who caused you or your loved one to suffer damages as a result of negligence. The same principle applies when you are involved in a motor vehicle with a motorist whose insurance is not sufficient to pay the total amount of your claim. Filing a personal injury action is another area where our experienced attorneys can help you. Regardless of whether your ultimate goal is to settle your claim or litigate the matter, our attorneys have handled thousands of claims and can help you obtain the relief you deserve.
