Auto Uninsured Motorist / Underinsured Motorist Injury Claims

Chicago Lawyers Pursuing Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Injury Claims

Many people don’t realize that if they are involved in a motor vehicle collision caused by another driver they may be able to recover compensation from their own insurance company as well as from the other driver’s insurance company.

How does this work? Perhaps you have been injured in a car crash that was caused by a driver in another car, and that other driver had little or no insurance coverage. If your auto injuries exceed the other driver’s total coverage, you may seek additional coverage under the uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist clauses of your own policy.

At the Law Offices of John B. Schwartz & Associates, our Chicago-based auto injury lawyers have recovered financial compensation for hundreds of injured clients through their uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage.

Have you been injured in a motor vehicle crash involving an 18-wheeler, car, motorcycle or pedestrian? Have you been in a collision involving a municipal employee or on-the-clock worker? Call 312-332-1586, 800-886-1586 or email

The Law Offices of John B. Schwartz & Associates is committed to obtaining full compensation for you following a car or truck crash. Two recent cases illustrate our ability to help you recover compensation under uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist laws and coverage:

  • Our client was severely injured, yet coverage from the liable party was limited to $100,000. We obtained $150,000 in additional compensation for our client from his underinsured motorist coverage. We also obtained $50,000 from the liable driver’s own “pocket” after we learned he transferred property to protect it from the lawsuit.
  • Our client experienced serious injury from a fender bender. We recovered a total of $800,000 by seeking and obtaining compensation from both the liable party’s insurance company and our client’s insurance company.
