Insured and Uninsured Defendants
In Texas, and without exception, all drivers must have auto insurance. Several powerful technologies allow law officers to know this important fact instantly, and mete-out “street justice” by immediately towing non-insured vehicles and give them costly tickets. But still, one-in-four drivers remain uninsured. If an insurance company is involved in your case or not, it makes a huge difference in the legal process and the outcome of your claim. But certain conditions surrounding your accident (and compensation) can become intricate, and contentious.
Suppose that both drivers involved in your accident were insured and an insurance company is responsible for compensating you for your injuries. Coverage is generally good news for you because it usually means there will be some amount of money available to compensate you for your losses if you’re successful in bringing your claim. And yet, most drivers with “street legal-only” insurance carry minimum coverage on their vehicle, and the insurance policy may not fully reimburse you for your losses if your accident was especially severe. Additionally, just because there is money theoretically available under an insurance policy to compensate you doesn’t mean that that compensation check is easy to come by. Anyone who has carried minimum coverage understands that some companies pay better (meaning quicker) than others. And some, with claimants as well as customers in-general, aren’t generally very responsive to any process other than taking in premiums. In just about any accident case where an insurance company is involved, it means that you’ll be up against aggressive adjusters, accident recreation specialists, defense attorneys, and investigators who all work to see that you lose.
