Helping Accident Victims Get the Insurance Benefits They Deserve
Typically, when you are injured in a collision caused by a negligent driver, his or her insurance policy is responsible for compensating you. However, if that driver doesn’t have insurance or has inadequate insurance, you may be entitled to benefits from your own insurance company.
At Berkshire Ginsberg, LLC, our experienced Portland lawyers pursue uninsured motorist claims on behalf of clients throughout the region. If you need to file a claim, we can represent you with your insurance company to make sure you get the benefits you need and deserve. Contact us online or call 503-542-3000.
Making Sure Your Insurance Company Treats You Fairly
If your car is insured in Oregon, your policy includes mandatory uninsured and underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage. This coverage kicks in if you have been injured in a collision — whether or not you were in your car at the time of the collision — and the other driver:
- Does not have auto insurance at all
- Does not have enough insurance to cover your damages
- Left the scene of the accident and cannot be identified
In order to get UM benefits, you need to demonstrate the extent of your injuries and prove that your collision was caused by the other driver’s negligence. Our attorneys have the experience to investigate your case and diligently pursue the benefits you are entitled to.
If you have been injured in a collision caused by an uninsured, underinsured or hit-and-run driver, do not hesitate to contact us at 503-542-3000.
