Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Claims

headlamp-2940_1280

Under Indiana law, all drivers must carry auto insurance. Unfortunately, you may find that the driver who caused your accident has no insurance or not enough insurance to cover your loss. All hope is not lost. In that case, your insurance policy may provide help through uninsured and underinsured motor vehicle coverage.

Uninsured Motorist Claim

When the at-fault driver has no insurance, you can file a claim with your own insurance company to recover damages under the uninsured motorist provision in your policy.

Underinsured Motorist Claim

When the at-fault driver has insurance, you can file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may find the other driver’s policy limits do not fully cover your damages. At this point, you will file with your own insurance company, which should cover the difference under the underinsured motorist provision of your auto policy.

Suffering a dog bite, or any animal attack, is always frightening. According to the Center’s for Disease Control, more than 4 million people per year in the US are bitten by dogs. Whether the resulting injuries are minor or severe, the Law Office of Shannon G. Starr, LLC understands how to handle these cases and will fight diligently for you.

In Indiana, all dog owners owe others the duty to act with reasonable care given their knowledge of their own pet. Generally, there is no liability for an owner of a domesticated dog that injuries someone else unless the dog is known to be dangerous, the owner negligently controlled the dog, or the dog is a breed that has dangerous propensities.

There are different injuries that may occur from a dog bite or animal attack. Those may include scarring, surgery, broken bones, rabies, infection, and psychological trauma.

Damages may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of consortium and punitive damages.
