, , , , ,

 

Most of us don’t think much about uninsured drivers, but it’s very important to understand how they can affect every one of us on the roads. You should know what it means to be involved in an accident with an uninsured driver.

Even when all drivers involved in the accident are insured, it can be a difficult situation to handle. However, when you’re dealing with an uninsured driver, resolving the damage is even more challenging. The laws that govern automobile accidents differ from state to state. So, how uninsured drivers are handled depends on that state’s law. This is why you should work with a car accident attorney if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. In these situations, working with our experienced accident attorneys will give you peace of mind, especially if there are injuries involved.  As your attorney we will be able to assist you with making a claim with your insurance company and help you figure out what damages should be paid under your uninsured motorist coverage.

Did you know that nearly 1 in 7 drivers don’t have insurance? This means when you pay for your insurance you are also paying to protect yourself from uninsured drivers.   Most auto insurance policies include provisions for damages or injuries caused by uninsured drivers.   Make sure you have this protection under your auto policy.  Serious accidents and injuries can overwhelm an injured party and their families.  The medical expenses and property damage from these types of claims can render and individual bankrupt without the appropriate coverage.
