We Serve Victims of Accidents Caused by Uninsured Motorists

Being involved in a car or motorcycle accident — or being struck while walking or riding a bicycle — is traumatic, to say the least. Learning that the driver at fault was uninsured or carried the absolute minimum of liability coverage can add major stress and concern in this difficult time.

Our insurance claim lawyers handle all types of valid personal injury cases in Illinois — including representation of people harmed by uninsured and underinsured motorists. We can often make a difference in negotiations with your own insurance company, and we strive to find any other viable source of financial recovery for you such as seeking a judgment against the uninsured driver.

If you suspect the other driver in an accident lacks insurance, contact our Illinois law firm for people injured by uninsured motorists today. Call the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid at 630-848-9294 or contact us online. We offer free, no-risk consultations to assess your legal options.

In-Depth Knowledge of Auto Insurance Claims and Coverage

Some people harmed in motor vehicle accidents with uninsured motorists assume that they simply have no recourse. They make the mistake of never filing an insurance claim or lawsuit — without talking to an experienced personal injury attorney. The realities include:

  • If you have your own auto insurance, there is a high likelihood that it includes uninsured motorist or "UM" coverage of at least $20,000 per accident, as required by Illinois law. For more information on uninsured motorist coverage, see our blog entry on uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage.
  • Many people in metro Chicago, Naperville and the western suburbs carry UM coverage with much higher policy limits. Our lawyers can analyze your policy.
  • If your injuries — or a family member's injuries or wrongful death — occurred in a hit-and-run, pedestrian injury accident or bicyclist accident, uninsured motorist coverage may cover damages in this situation as well.
  • Generally speaking, your auto insurance rates will not increase because of an uninsured motorist claim for an accident that was not your fault.
