A Houston Accident Attorney Can Help If the Driver Was Uninsured or Underinsured
Texas drivers must have a minimum amount of auto insurance by law. The current minimum liability limits are $30,000 for each injured person, up to a total of $60,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage per accident. Unfortunately, sometimes such figures are not enough. Or even worse, some drivers have no insurance at all, even though it's against the law to operate a vehicle without insurance.
About 15 percent of all motorists in Texas drive without insurance, according to the Insurance Research Council. That number may even be higher due to the downturn in the economy.
What would you do if you were involved in an accident caused by an underinsured or uninsured driver? How would you pay your bills? What if the driver talks briefly to you, then flees the scene of the accident? How would you pursue compensation for a hit and run accident?
These are just some of the common questions Houston auto accident attorneys answer for people dealing with serious auto accidents. Serving people in Houston, Galveston and throughout Texas, the Law Offices of Gene S. Hagood has decades of experience fighting for the rights of car accident victims.
