Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Claims in San Fernando Valley
All drivers in California are required to have liability auto insurance. Unfortunately, many drivers break this law and drive without insurance or if they do possess liability insurance, it may not be enough to properly compensate the victims of serious motor vehicle accidents.
If you have suffered injuries at the hands of an underinsured or uninsured motorist, it is crucial to discuss your case with an experienced personal injury lawyer.

We have extensive experience with uninsured motorist claims, enabling us to not only handle them with success but also recognize them when others may not. Recognizing an uninsured motorist claim often plays a vital role in the success of a case.
For example, uninsured motorist claims present a scenario where your own insurance company takes a position that is adversarial to you. Failure to recognize the claim as an actual, or potential, uninsured motorist claim may lead the injured party into a situation where there has been a failure to fully protect legal rights when dealing with their own insurance company. In addition, uninsured motorist claims are governed by the California Insurance Code, and they are not adjudicated in a court trial. Handling your claim in that environment requires experience, skill and know-how. We, at The Law Office of Rosenstock and Azran, possess the necessary combination of experience, skill, know-how and resources to successfully handle these types of claims.

Place the Onus on Us
In cases involving a lack of insurance, the onus is on the injured party to prove that the person who caused the accident was, in fact, uninsured or underinsured at the time of the accident. This may sound difficult, but you don’t need to worry about it. We will do all the necessary investigation to determine whether and what insurance coverage was in effect. If necessary, and if the facts permit, we will prove that the responsible party was underinsured or uninsured.
Beyond that, we will file all necessary documents with the state of California and the Department of Motor Vehicles. We will also dig deep to answer important questions such as:
- Was there anybody else who might have insured the vehicle?
- Was the vehicle registered to someone other than the driver?
- Does the responsible party have other assets that could be used in a settlement?
- Was the driver working as an employee, agent or performing a duty on behalf of someone else?
