When an Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist causes a wrongful death, the deceased family member’s insurance company might have to provide coverage pursuant to uninsured and underinsured policy terms. This coverage may not be sufficient to cover all costs associated with the wrongful death. In those cases, a wrongful death lawsuit might be required to recover compensation for the losses sustained. If your loved one was lost due to an uninsured motorist, you have the right to take that person to court to sue the driver for compensation to pay for your expenses that resulted from his irresponsible driving. These issues can result in serious injury, cause permanent impairment, and require medical intervention to prevent permanent damage. These injuries can be life-threatening.
