Our car accident lawyers recently settled an uninsured motorists coverage claim against State Farm Insurance. Our client was injured in an auto accident when she was struck by another driver with no insurance. Fortunately, she had a uninsured motorist coverage provision in her own insurance policy. This allowed her to make a claim against State Farm caused by the other driver with no insurance.
Uninsured benefits are based upon the insurance policy, which means that the terms of the insurance contract control the right to benefits. The policy that provides the uninsured motorist benefits can be a auto insurance policy issue to the injured person, a member of the injured person's family or household, or some other policy. It is always wise to have an experienced Michigan uninsured motorist claim lawyer immediately investigate your car accident claims, including the review of your insurance contract.
Our client suffered a neck injury in the accident which was diagnosed as a herniated disc at C6-7. She was unable to have surgery for the injury because she had other non-accident related medical expenses which made her a poor surgical candidate. She underwent conservative treatment for her injuries and missed minimal time from work. We filed the uninsured motorists coverage claim for her and State Farm agreed to pay the settlement of $40,000.00.
