Uninsured and underinsured motorists
When a driver refuses or is unable to carry proper motor vehicle insurance, that driver puts more than just him- or herself at risk. If such a driver injures another person, there may be inadequate resources to cover all of the damages. Injured parties, however, may be covered by their own insurance policies. Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage protects accident victims in these cases. In this situation, your insurance company will not necessarily be on your side. If you have been involved in a collision with an uninsured or underinsured driver, it is important to contact an attorney to examine your insurance policy and create a plan of action.
When a driver has been in an accident, no-fault auto insurance allows the driver to collect from his or her own insurance company no matter who was at fault. Not every state has a no-fault insurance structure, but those that do have very specific laws governing when, how much, and for how long the injured party may collect. Consult with an attorney to discuss how your state views fault and to determine how the laws may affect your right to recover damages for injuries.
