Underinsured Motorist Accidents

Work with a Trusted Car Accident Lawyer in Orange County, CA

An underinsured car accident can result in a wide array of injuries. Those who are lucky have minor injuries that they can recover from quickly. For many others, the injuries are serious and can take months to recover from. In certain circumstances, there is never a full recovery or death occurs. It is important to have someone looking out for you and making sure you get the maximum financial compensation possible.

What to Do After Your Accident

When you have been injured in a car accident with a driver who is underinsured, an important step to take is to find out what your insurance policy covers. The trouble is that insurance policy terminology can be very hard for the average individual to understand, which is why it is a good idea to contact an experienced Orange County injury lawyer as soon as possible. Your attorney will be able to review your policy and quickly determine what type of coverage you have in these circumstances.

Once you have a skilled car accident lawyer representing you, you start to relax a little, knowing your best interests are being looked after. With the help of strong legal counsel, you can avoid settling for a settlement that is not fair and right for your situation. If the insurance company is unwilling to provide a fair offer, can help you move forward with a lawsuit. Besides dealing with the insurance company, your lawyer could also help you seek asset recovery from the actual underinsured driver.

Compensation Through Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Insurance plans in California offer uninsured motorist coverage. Although drivers are not required to pay for uninsured motorist coverage, this insurance allows drivers to obtain the compensation they need for damages and injuries that occur in an accident where the negligent driver does not have insurance. Without uninsured motorist coverage, some individuals are left to pay for their losses and expenses without aid. Finding out if you are covered for accidents with uninsured drivers is an important element to review with your injury attorney.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

  • Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”

  • The entire firm was professional and supportive

    “I would highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone seeking a fair settlement as a result of an auto accident. The Firm came highly recommended to me and I understand why. They took the time to explain what would happen, they aligned me with excellent medical care, and they were able to negotiate a fast and fair settlement for my injuries. Throughout the process the entire Firm was professional and supportive.”

  • Highly Recommend

    “I cannot recommend the offices of Cohn & Swartzon highly enough. I was referred to them after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. I was in pain and after 6 weeks was still trying to be seen by a physical therapist. I met with Jason the first day and he couldn't have been nicer. He seemed to really care about me and my case and within 24 hours I was being seen at a great facility for physical therapy. My case was taken over by Elva who was always on top of things. She kept me in the loop and pretty much took over everything so that I didn't have to deal with it. She was able to get the highest amount possible and I walked away with more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for her and the entire office of Cohn & Swartzon.”

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”
