If the defendant has no assets, then you may be limited solely to the funds payable by the defendant's insurance policy. You may also make a claim under the vehicle's and/or the deceased's insurance policy if it provided for uninsured motorist coverage. As a Dallas personal injury lawyer, car accidents may pose a special problem in getting fair compensation especially when the accident results in a wrongful death or serious personal injury. Because auto insurance usually involves relatively low policy limits, this may be only compensation that the injured party might receive.
