Being involved in a car accident is bad enough, but finding out that you’ve just been hit by an uninsured or underinsured motorist can knock the wind out of you. Take heart — the situation is a bit more complicated than a normal fender bender, but all is not lost.

Fortunately, the state of Oregon requires that auto insurance policies carry uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. So, you’re all taken care of, right?

Maybe. Your insurance company is a for-profit organization, so they want to pay out as little as possible. In other words, if you accept their first offer, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll be left holding a sizable chunk of the bill for an accident that wasn’t your fault. Salem, Oregon Attorney Lance D. Youd can help you obtain fair and just compensation if you’ve been injured in a car accident by an uninsured or underinsured driver.
