Why Do I Need an Underinsured Motorist Attorney?
If you have been the victim of a car accident with an underinsured motorist, you could be entitled to compensation to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, physical therapy, vehicle damage, and more.
A car accident is devastating, no matter how it happened. If the underinsured driver is at fault, it’s hard to know how they will pay for your damages without the backup of an insurance policy. Dealing with an underinsured motorist adds additional complexities that no one should have to face alone. It’s nearly impossible to represent yourself in court and obtain a suitable, fair settlement. In fact, those that retain a lawyer to represent them in court get three times as much as those who attempt to do it alone.
An experienced uninsured motorist attorney can help you navigate the confusing and overwhelming aftermath of an accident. At Detroit Personal Injury Attorneys, we’ll launch an investigation into your accident, negotiate with other lawyers, file your claim, and help build a strong case to get you compensation. We have the experience and resources to fully take on your case and aggressively pursue a fair settlement.

Better Understanding Underinsured Motorist Policies
Insurance policies are notoriously difficult to understand, even in the best circumstances. However, underinsured motorist coverage can complicate the coverage even more.
At the basic level, underinsured motorist coverage:
- Is individualized. Each policy is made personally for each policyholder.
- Can cover the at-fault driver’s debt to the person he/she injured.
- Might not completely cover the costs of an accident.
- Can have short statutes of limitations.
- Might have complicated or confusing notice requirements.
To best understand underinsured motorist coverage and how it might affect you, talk with an experienced Detroit personal injury attorney.
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
Generally, after a car accident in Michigan, you have three years from the day of the accident to file the claim. While there are sometimes exceptions, (such as when children are involved), most accidents in Michigan follow the three-year statute of limitations.
However, the three-year rule might not apply in the case of an underinsured driver. The actual statute of limitations for accidents involving uninsured or underinsured drivers depends on the exact language in the underinsured motorist contract.
Because the limitations could be drastically shorter or longer than three years, you must contact an uninsured motorist attorney immediately who can better help you understand the system and meet important deadlines.
If you miss a deadline to file a claim, you will likely lose any chance of ever receiving proper compensation for your injuries or vehicle damage. Don’t miss out on securing your money because of a confusing or unclear deadline.
