Professional Uninsured and Underinsured
Motorist Lawyer in Chicago
The law in Illinois requires drivers to maintain minimum insurance policy limits. Sadly, some motorists are either uninsured or have no adequate insurance to cover the damages arising from their negligence. The lack of coverage of these motorists can have devastating consequences, especially if you’re the one on the road. The last thing you want to happen is to shell out cash for your medical bills after getting into an accident caused by the negligence or recklessness of another person.
The good news is that you have options when you’re facing this situation. The uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) attorneys of Taxman, Pollock, Murray & Bekkerman, LLC, a law office based in Chicago, are ready to discuss these options with you. We have the experience necessary to handle UM/UIM cases.
Even if the motorist is underinsured or lacks any form of insurance, you could still file an insurance claim with your own insurance company. Your insurance company may have to pay the full cost for the injuries you’ve sustained along with other damages. This option, however, is only available if you’ve bought UM/UIM coverage.
While Illinois law demands insurance companies offer this coverage to drivers, you are not required to purchase it.Even if you do buy one, insurance firms will look for reasons to disapprove your claims. You’ll likely have to fight hard to obtain the compensation you deserve. Additionally, you need an experienced lawyer who can check your policy carefully and determine your coverage.
Our law firm makes sure that your insurance provider lives up to its promises. Our attorneys know the UM/UIM processes and are familiar with the steps to dispute a denied claim. They have successfully helped motorist accident victims get the compensation you deserve after an accident with an underinsured or uninsured driver.
Additionally, our lawyers have the skills to locate other liable parties that can pay for your treatment in case of a serious accident. Sometimes a driver that appears uninsured on the police report can have adequate insurance through their employer because the accident occurred in the course of their employment. If this is the case, you have the option to sue the driver and his/her company.

- Conduct in-depth investigations of the accident
