Uninsured Motorist Claims
Were you hit by a driver without insurance?
When you are involved in a car accident, the trouble you have to go through
after the fact seems like as much as you can handle. What can happen at
times is that on top of the fact that you were hit by another car, that
driver may not have been insured. Most car insurance policies will have
a clause in them known as the uninsured motorist clause. This guarantees
that if you are involved in a collision with a driver who doesn't
have insurance, you can still be covered for damages. No insurance policy
is perfect however, and this may mean that you are left with some of the bill.
Someone who is uninsured is any driver who is driving a vehicle that they
are not covered under liability insurance for. This means that even if
a person is driving their friend's car and gets involved in a collision,
they are considered an uninsured motorist if they are not on their friend's
insurance policy. Sometimes, your case may qualify as an uninsured motorist
claim if you were involved in a hit-and-run in which you are not aware
of who the other driver in the accident was. Simply because the car that
hit you did not have insurance does not mean that you cannot seek a claim
against them. In fact, you are absolutely justified to do so if their
negligence caused you injury, regardless of their insurance status.
