Naperville Uninsured Motorist Accident Lawyer

Protecting You From Uninsured and Underinsured Drivers

An increasing number of people in Illinois are driving without insurance or with only the minimum required by state law. As a result, if you are injured in an accident, the other driver may not have enough insurance or assets to pay for your damages. If you find yourself in this situation, you could benefit from the advice of an experienced attorney.

At the law firm Marquardt & Belmonte, P.C., our lawyers represent people injured by uninsured or underinsured drivers in Wheaton, Naperville and other communities in the DuPage County area. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Uninsured and Uninsured Motorists Coverage

In Illinois, the minimum liability insurance that a driver is required to carry is $20,000 for a single person or $40,000 for all people involved in a single accident. If you suffer a serious injury, $20,000 will not go far in covering your expenses.

When the other driver does not have enough insurance to pay for your damages, our lawyers will look for other sources of coverage. One source is your own coverage for uninsured and underinsured drivers.

The Illinois Insurance Code requires that every liability insurance policy provides coverage for both uninsured and underinsured motorists when you select uninsured motorist coverage that exceeds the statutory minimum. Our lawyers will review your insurance policy and ensure that you have all of the coverage you should have. Then we will negotiate with your insurance company on your behalf.
