Uninsured or Underinsured
LAWYERS FOR VICTIMS OF UNINSURED OR UNDERINSURED DRIVERS IN KITCHENER-WATERLOO AND THE SURROUNDING AREA
In Ontario, all drivers have a legal obligation to obtain car insurance before operating a motor vehicle. However despite these laws, it is not uncommon for people to drive without insurance, or with an expired policy. Even when drivers do have insurance, it is possible that their coverage will be insufficient to cover the damages suffered by another motorist in an accident for which they are at fault.
The personal injury lawyers at Petker Campbell Postnikoff are experienced in working with clients who have been victims of car accidents with uninsured or underinsured drivers. When you suffer injuries or property damage in this situation, it can feel as though you have no recourse, however there are options available to you. We will represent you in order to obtain a settlement from your own insurance provider if available, and we will represent your interests in court if litigation becomes necessary.

In situations involving motor vehicle accidents, you have an obligation to notify the other driver, and any other possible defendant, of your intention to seek damages within 120 days of the accident. If your accident may have been caused by improper road maintenance or design, you have only 10 days to notify the proper authority. Due to the time constraints involved, it is crucial to reach out to knowledgeable legal counsel as soon as possible following an accident. It is also important to wait a sufficient amount of time before initiating the claim, in order to get a clear picture of your injuries and any long-term damages that you may suffer. This ensures that the proper damages are ultimately sought. Our lawyers are experienced in determining the best course of action for filing a claim, based on the types of injuries involved, and we will ensure that a claim is optimally timed according to your unique situation.
