Uninsured Motorist Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
If you are injured in a multi-vehicle accident, your first concern should be to get the medical care you need. The second concern will be ensuring that your injury will be covered under insurance. In most injury vehicle accidents, police will come to the scene, investigate and compile information on everyone involved, including insurance coverage. If the at-fault driver did not have insurance, you may wonder what your options are to have your injury expenses and property damage covered.
While it is against the law in Florida to drive without liability insurance, many people still do. Even if they have insurance, the minimum amount often is not enough to cover the cost of a serious injury. If you are injured and the at-fault driver does not have adequate insurance or no insurance at all, you may need to file a claim against your own insurance.
Fighting Your Insurance for an Uninsured Motorist Claim
Uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist coverage are optional in Florida, but a wise investment. If you have this coverage with your auto insurance, you can file a claim if another driver is at fault but does not have enough insurance to cover your damages. However, like any insurance claim, many insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible for injuries caused by uninsured motorists. You may need an attorney to help you maximize your settlement amount through your insurance company and look at all options for compensation.
