The most dangerous drivers often carry the minimum amount of insurance required by law — or no insurance at all. This is not welcome news when you are facing medical bills, lost time from work, a wrecked vehicle and possibly permanent harm from an accident.

The good news is that your own insurance policy probably contains uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage. However, the average policyholder will have difficulty collecting full compensation without legal help. Guenard & Bozarth has years of experience with uninsured motorist accident claims. We won’t let the insurance company deny, delay or downplay your legitimate claim for damages.

California law requires every driver to carry liability insurance for bodily injury to others. A disturbing percentage of Californians are driving around without any insurance. And many drivers opt for the minimum liability coverage — $15,000 per individual (to a maximum of $30,000 to cover all victims), plus $5,000 in property damage. In a serious auto accident, hospital care, lost wages and other damages can far exceed this coverage.

Your own UM/UIM policy can be invoked:

  • If the other driver is not insured
  • If your losses exceed the other driver’s policy limits
  • In a hit-and-run situation when the other driver is not identified

Our lawyers have handled motor vehicle accidents in Northern California for more than 25 years, with offices in Sacramento and Elk Grove. If you were involved in an accident with an uninsured driver or the at-fault driver does not have enough coverage to go around, call Guenard & Bozarth for a free legal consultation or contact us online. We can handle your case from the beginning or intervene if you are having problems with your UM/UIM claim.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.

My daughter was involved in an automobile accident in an intersection on her 17th birthday. The other person said it was her fault and my daughter said her light was green. I am not the sort of person who sues but my insurance
