Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Accidents
The pain associated with a car accident may threaten your ability to continue working, while leaving you to worry about how your medical bills will be covered. Even if the other driver is uninsured or underinsured with only $25,000 in liability coverage, you are not out of luck.
I am personal injury lawyer Shelley L. Fuller with extensive experience handing uninsured motorist (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) claims in Beaverton, Oregon and surrounding areas. I have a clear understanding of the complicated insurance laws that can present a challenge to motorists hit by underinsured or uninsured drivers. I am committed to applying my years of experience and legal skills to help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your medical needs, lost wages and other expenses associated with the car accident.

Representation Following An Accident Involving Uninsured And Underinsured Drivers
If you or your loved one was hit by a driver with little or no insurance coverage, entrust my law firm to help secure your legal rights. My legal team and I will investigate all possible sources to help you cover your medical needs, including through your own insurance coverage.
Many personal injury accident victims do not realize that they have UM/UIM insurance coverage through their own insurance company. When you select our my firm, I will review the terms of your policy to help you understand if you have been making payments to your insurance company to cover accidents with uninsured or underinsured motorists. The only way to tap into your own uninsured motorist coverage is if you have more coverage than the at-fault driver.
Underinsured and uninsured motorist claims must be filed through your insurance company. On the surface, this might seem like a straightforward process since you will be dealing with your own insurance company. However, similar to personal injury claims, insurance companies are known to minimize payments or fight back in paying out UM/UIM claims all together.
My law firm does not shy away from handling highly complicated insurance claims. I offer an aggressive approach focused on making sure you are not left to cover the cost of your medical needs, just because you were hit by a driver with little or no insurance coverage.
Handling Hit-and-Run and Phantom Accident Claims in Portland
If you were in a hit-and-run accident, I will conduct a thorough investigation to try and identify the at-fault driver. My legal team and I will evaluate the police report and witness statements to help us gather any viable leads. Unfortunately, hit-and-run drivers cannot always be identified. In this case, I will pursue an uninsured motorist claim through your insurance policy to cover your medical bills or property damages up to the limits of your insurance policy.
I also handle accident claims involving phantom drivers who run motorists off the road or cause them to swerve and hit another driver. In order to pursue an underinsured claim against a phantom driver, a police report must be made documenting proof of the accident. My legal team and I can also pursue uninsured motorist claims for drivers involved in accidents with domesticated animals.
