Uninsured/Underinsured Drivers and Car Accidents
Orlando & Winter Park, Florida
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety estimates that up to 33 percent of all drivers have no bodily injury coverage. If one of these drivers causes a car accident in which you or your passengers sustain a serious injury, there is no way to file a claim with their insurance for compensation. Worse still, many of these drivers have no personal assets. This further complicates the process of seeking compensation and often leaves you shouldering the full expenses related to your accident.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage
In the state of Florida, insurance companies are required by law to offer you uninsured motorist coverage at an equal amount to your bodily injury coverage. This is an elective coverage, but incredibly important to have.
This coverage allows you to file a claim with your own insurance company to seek compensation for your medical expenses and personal losses when you are injured by an uninsured motorist. However, even with this coverage, the amount offered by insurance is often woefully inadequate to cover the actual damages caused by your injury. This is why you need an aggressive Orlando car accident attorney on your side to make sure your rights are protected.
Why Hire an Attorney
Insurance companies have a proven record of trying to minimize settlements offered to victims. It is possible that your uninsured motorist coverage will help pay for a portion of your medical expenses and property damage, but in many cases it will not cover all of your injuries. When long-term rehabilitation is required, you may face an uphill battle trying to get additional money from an insurance company, and they will never take into account your physical and emotional pain and suffering.
