Portland Uninsured Motorist Accident Attorney
Injured in an accident with an uninsured motorist in Portland, Oregon?
Oregon law requires those who drive to acquire automobile insurance. People who drive without insurance coverage, or those who are underinsured, pose a risk to other drivers and their passengers. Because of this, it is important to have uninsured motorist coverage from your own insurance company to protect you in the event of an accident with an uninsured motorist. Even with this type of insurance, however, you may find that your insurance carrier refuses to fairly settle a valid claim. Your insurance carrier may delay, ignore, or deny your claim or offer you a settlement far below what is needed to cover your medical costs, property damage to your vehicle, or loss of wages.
This becomes a case of double victimization. First, you have been victimized by a driver who cannot make restitution. Second, your insurance company, to whom you have in good faith made your insurance premium payments, rejects your claim or offers you a nuisance settlement. At such a time, you may need legal help to rectify the situation. Searching for the help of a Portland uninsured motorist accident attorney can be daunting, but you can trust that you are in good hands when you turn to the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe for assistance.
