Have you been injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, either while driving, walking, or riding your bicycle? Did the motorist at fault for your injuries carry too little insurance to fully compensate you for your injuries and damages?
If you have been injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist who carried too little insurance, unless that person has assets, there may be little you can do to recover just compensation through a settlement or jury trial.
This is why it is important that you have your own insurance with adequate coverage in the event you are seriously hurt while driving, walking, or riding your bicycle by an uninsured or underinsured motorist.
Even if you have adequate uninsured / underinsured coverage on your auto insurance policy, you may need a high skilled attorney to ensure your insurance actually pays.
Uninsured / underinsured motorist claims are subject to specific laws which can be difficult to understand and follow.

In situations where your insurance company refuses to pay what is fair, we have strategies that can help you recover what you deserve.
Heinrich Law’s attorneys have successfully resolved hundreds of uninsured and underinsured motorist claims.
A NOTABLE WIN
Our client was seriously injured when a drunk driver struck her at high speed in a parking lot in Los Angeles. Heinrich Law’s expert understanding of insurance law ensured that Ms. Jain received just compensation, even though the at fault driver had inadequate insurance and no appreciable assets. In this case, our work focused on identifying any insurance policies with uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage that might provide compensation for our client’s injuries and damages. Our exhaustive investigation uncovered an insurance policy held by our client’s parents that included “UM/UIM” coverage. The insurance company initially denied coverage, but after reviewing the policy language and relentlessly pursuing the claim, the insurer had no choice but to change its position and admit our client did in fact qualify as an insured under the policy.
With Heinrich Law’s thorough research, understanding of insurance coverage law, aggressive advocacy, appropriate use of experts, and advanced technology, Heinrich Law secured a $ 1,000,000 settlement for this very deserving client.
