We will investigate all available sources from which to recover your damages. Those sources might include not only liability insurance, medical payments coverage and the negligent party’s personal assets, but even your own insurance. For example, in motor vehicle cases, the party at fault is often completely uninsured or woefully “underinsured,” meaning the value of your claim exceeds the amount of auto insurance coverage he carries. In such cases, we may be able to collect the value of your claim from your own insurance company. If your own auto policy includes provisions for uninsured or underinsured drivers, then your own insurance company must pay the value of your claim in accordance with the provisions of the policy.
