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.

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”

  • I was very pleased with the firm's persistence

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • Thank you again for all your help and dedication

    “Saar, I wanted to say thank you again for all your help and dedication. The settlement was a bonus. My main concern was my well-being. And I'm glad to say I am well. I do not have any back pain and I can enjoy watching and interacting with my daughter. One more time and on behalf of my family, thanks.”

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”
