Abbeville Alabama Car Accident Leads To Uninsured Motorist Settlement

Our client was injured when the car he was a passenger in was struck by an uninsured motorist at 100 mph. Alabama car accident lawyer Morris Lilienthal represented our client in the personal injury case. The car accident occurred in May of 2009 on U.S. Hwy 431 in Abbeville Alabama (Henry County). This tragic car wreck is a perfect example of why it’s important to have uninsured motorist coverage and why it’s important to hire an experienced Alabama uninsured motorist attorney. In this case, the at-fault motor vehicle did not have automobile insurance, nor did the car the plaintiff was riding in. Further, the plaintiff did not have car insurance. Fortunately, the plaintiff lived with a relative that did have car insurance. Most car insurance policies provide uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage to any relative who resides with the insured. In this case, the plaintiff was not named on his relative’s insurance, but he was a “resident relative” therefore he was covered under his grandmother’s car insurance. We are pleased that we were able to reach a fair and quick settlement for our client.
