Uninsured motorist insurance coverage may help accident expenses

Complications typically arise after a car crash as many of them result in property damage, medical expenses and emotional suffering. Sadly, some also end in further tragedy as well. Wisconsin personal injury attorneys are able to help some victims recoup their financial losses after a car accident. In the event of an accident with an uninsured motorist, attorneys are still able to advise victims regarding the possibility of filing claims through their own insurance for financial compensation to cover related accident expenses. Recently, four children lost their father in a tragic hit-and-run accident.

The 46-year-old father was traveling from his place of employment to home when a speeding stolen car struck his driver’s side door. He was trapped in his car and did not survive the injuries he suffered. The driver of the speeding car and the passengers all exited their vehicle and fled on foot.

The father of four reportedly worked two jobs to support his family, and they are understandably devastated with his loss. To complicate financial matters with the loss of his income, the family now is responsible unexpected funeral expenses. Unfortunately, for his situation the stolen car and the unidentified speeding driver will likely limit their legal options.

Although his family may not be able to recoup lost expenses and income through litigation, they may be able to file a claim against his own uninsured motorist insurance coverage. Because handling insurance companies can often be difficult, Wisconsin personal injury attorneys can advise any family in a similar situation through the process. Compensation will not bring back a loved one, but it can help to relieve some of the unexpected financial stress.
