Family-Owned Personal Injury Firm in Temecula & Hemet
A car crash can be a terribly frightening and traumatic experience, and those incidents become even more complicated when one or more drivers have little or no insurance coverage. If you have been injured in a car accident involving an uninsured or underinsured motorist in Temecula, Hemet or the surrounding areas, our skilled personal injury lawyers can help. Sweeney, Sweeney & Sweeney, APC is prepared to walk you through your legal options and help you obtain the compensation that you are owed.
How to Maximize Your Compensation
It is no secret that insurance companies are in the business of making money — not losing it. When you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, your insurance company will likely try to avoid fully compensating you.
Without the assistance of an experienced uninsured motorist lawyer, you could be at risk of:
- Delayed payment
- Denied payment
Some accident victims make the costly mistake of settling with their insurance company for an insufficient amount of money. When you rely on our law firm to handle the matter for you, we can ensure that your insurance company fully compensates you for all the damages that would have been covered had the other driver been fully insured.

The Temecula uninsured motorist attorneys at Sweeney, Sweeney & Sweeney, APC work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not owe us a dime unless we recover monetary damages for you.
Should I provide a recorded statement to the insurance company?
It is our strong recommendation that this not be done without legal representation so as not to jeopardize your claim. The reality is that insurance claims adjusters are skilled at asking questions that are designed to result in the reduction or denial of your claim. Insurance companies are businesses, and they are in business to make money. Their lawyers often try to use recorded statements in order to minimize or deny the value of accident claims. You need us to help you.
Should I inform the other party's insurance company about the accident?
To pursue the claim, the other party’s insurance company needs to be contacted. However, the other party's insurer — and likely your insurer — may take something that you said and manipulate your statement in order to minimize or altogether deny your accident claim. Again, contact us as soon as possible after your accident, as we can handle any further communication with the insurance companies to ensure no misunderstandings occur and you claim is not jeopardized. Also, if the other party's insurer contacts you for information, you are not obliged to make any statements. Instead, refer the insurer to your attorney.
Should I inform my insurance company that I was involved in a crash?
Yes. Waiting to notify your insurer could result in your accident not being covered. However, when you contact the insurance company, provide only the facts of the case and avoid making any statements about who was at fault. You should contact a personal injury lawyer before making any more statements to the insurance company.
