Uninsured Motorist coverage (“UM”) and Underinsured Motorist coverage (“UIM”) are auto insurance policies driver’s have the option of purchasing. If you have purchased one you automatically receive the other. There is such strong public policy favoring these policies that insurance companies are required to offer them to you when you purchase an insurance policy. If they failed to do so, they are required to extend that coverage to you even though your accident has already happened.

Often the driver who causes an injury producing collision will have little or no auto insurance, and no assets that can be pursued to compensate the victims for the damage they caused. In these circumstances, if possible, a UM/UIM claim is made.  UM coverage is used when the at-fault driver carries no car insurance.  UIM coverage can be utilized when the at-fault driver has valid insurance, but not enough to make the victim whole.

Proper handling of your uninsured or under-insured motorist claims require extensive knowledge of tort law, insurance bad faith, contract law and Nevada’s Unfair Claims Practices Act. The attorneys at Willoughby Shulman Injury Lawyers have handled hundreds of these matters and have the knowledge to obtain the best results possible.

What We Mean By “Every Client Matters”


Everyone has dealt with poor customer service. It is a universally frustrating experience. No one likes to spend money on a service that makes life harder, rather than easier, or feel ignored.

Sadly, it is a common complaint made against personal injury attorneys. Clients’ feel they are taken for granted, especially if they do not have a million-dollar case. At Willoughby Shulman Injury Lawyers, we do things differently.

We believe every client matters and deserves individualized attention. No matter the size of the case, either Eric Willoughby or Steve Shulman will handle it personally. You will not be passed off to an associate.

We also believe it is important to be able to reach your personal injury attorneys. That is why every client can call, text, and email directly with Eric and Steve. Your case matters to us and we are here to help.
