Sisters injured by uninsured driver

In April 2014, The Flowers Law Firm successfully finalized the settlement of two claims for uninsured/underinsured motorist benefits. Two sisters were riding in their SUV when an unlicensed and uninsured driver cut across an intersection in front of them. The collision caused both sisters to sustain injuries to their backs, legs, and chest. Their SUV was totaled. Both sisters received treatments and had to endure months of physical therapy due to the collision. The driver of the vehicle that caused the collision was ticketed for (1) failure to yield, (2) failure to possess a driver’s license, and (3) failure to possess insurance.

After the collision, the sisters called The Flowers Law Firm and retained the firm to assist them with their uninsured/underinsured motorist claim. This case is a perfect example of why having UM/UIM coverage on an insurance policy is so vitally important. Without this insurance, the sisters would not have been able to seek any compensation for the injuries they sustained. After the sisters treated with their medical providers, the Firm was able to reach an amicable resolution of their insurance claims and worked with health insurers and Medicare to reach an ultimate resolution to their insurance claims.

Just because the negligent person may be an unlicensed or uninsured driver, this does not mean that you are out of options. The Flowers Law Firm in Tyler, Texas is proud to represent injured people across East Texas with their personal injury matters.
