About Uninsured & Underinsured Drivers
When you are in an accident with an uninsured motorist, it means he or she does not have an insurance policy to cover the expenses from the accident. That includes either their own damages, or any of yours they are considered responsible for, including medical fees, vehicle repairs, and loss of wages. Even if a driver has an insurance company, they may have an insufficient policy, meaning they are underinsured and cannot pay for the entirety of the damages.
Plan Your Next Step
Uninsured and underinsured motorists will be unable to pay for any damages from your accident, so the best thing to do is file a claim through your insurance company. These claims are called uninsured or underinsured motorist claims, and are included in every polity. This should cover a significant amount of your damages, but in some cases it may not cover everything. In that situation, a lawsuit may be your next best option.
Weigh Your Legal Options & Seek Trustworthy Counsel
A lawsuit may be the only way to seek compensation for the damages incurred during your accident, but it isn’t best for everyone. It’s likely that, if the person involved in the crash with you was unable to afford car insurance, he or she will also be unable to reimburse you for any money awarded in a lawsuit. For situations like these, it’s always best to seek the option of your lawyer, as the best course of action varies case by case and depends on the circumstances of your accident, your insurance policy, and the policy of the other party.
