Auto Insurance Laws in Oregon
Oregon law requires drivers to be covered at a minimum to protect against the risk of a car accident with an uninsured driver. If you are involved in an accident with a negligent vehicle operator, an insurance claim can be filed with your own auto insurance company.
What to Do If You’ve Been in an Accident with an Uninsured Motorist
If you are involved in an accident in which the other party does not have insurance, you are in a difficult situation. To help you through the maze of legal issues, we urge you to contact Paulson Coletti Trial Attorneys PC as soon as possible after the accident. Do not agree to an interview with an insurance adjuster without first retaining our services to protect your right to the compensation you deserve.
In accidents involving injuries, the issue of liability is crucial. Doctor visits, tests, treatment, and rehabilitation are expensive. The amount of compensation you may be able to receive will be affected by the determination of which party caused the accident.
In general, drivers who do not have insurance may not have sufficient resources for you to recover damages in a lawsuit filed in civil court, but only an investigation into the facts will reveal what resources are available. Our experienced lawyers are professional in resolving uninsured motorist accident cases and will help you pursue the maximum possible under the terms of your policy.
