New Jersey Uninsured Motorist Injury Lawyers
Accidents Involving Uninsured or Underinsured Drivers
When you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, one of the first things you typically do is gather information regarding the other driver regarding insurance coverage. Your insurance provider will usually pay most or all of your property damage and seek to recover compensation from the other driver’s carrier. But what do you do if the person at fault had no insurance or only had coverage for property damage? You do have options, but you need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to protect your interests. The office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.
At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have been fighting for the rights of personal injury victims throughout central New Jersey for more than 40 years. We don’t run a volume business and won’t use the same approach with you that we use with every other client. Instead, we will carefully investigate the specific facts and circumstances of your case, and focus all our energy and efforts on finding ways to win that case.
We know that a personal injury can have an impact on every aspect of your life. We will work hard to be available and accessible when you have questions or concerns, and will return all your calls and e-mails as quickly as possible. We will keep you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as of your options and likelihood of success.
Because we have consistently obtained positive results over the last four decades, we receive many new cases as referrals from former or existing clients, or from other lawyers.
When You Are Injured by an Uninsured or Underinsured Driver
You have options when you have been injured by someone who is uninsured or underinsured. Many insurance policies have a rider that provides for a certain amount of coverage in the event the other driver is uninsured. We will review your policy to determine whether you have coverage and, if so, will work directly with your insurer to make certain you get the benefits to which you are entitled.
We will also carefully investigate your accident to determine whether there are any other potentially responsible parties. These may include:
- Municipalities, if there is evidence that the roadway or signage was defective or in poor shape
- Vehicle manufacturers, if there is evidence that the other driver’s car had defective parts or the accident resulted from design or manufacturing defects
- Other insurance
We will help you seek full and fair compensation for all your losses, from lost wages and income to medical expenses to physical pain and suffering. We handle all types of injury claims, including serious and catastrophic loss, such as brain or spinal cord injuries, broken bones, burns, paralysis, and amputation or loss of limb. We also litigate wrongful death cases.
