Marietta Underinsured Motorist Claims Attorney
Injured? Call Jones & Swanson Today
Georgia requires that drivers carry a minimum amount of liability auto insurance to help pay for any injury or property damage they cause in an accident. However, what options are available to you if the at-fault driver lacks the insurance required to pay for the damages you’ve suffered? If you have uninsured motorist (UM) insurance coverage, you may be able to pursue a claim with your own insurance company.
The laws about claims filed under your UM coverage can be challenging to comprehend, but it’s essential to understand the vital protection UM can offer. At Jones & Swanson, our team of dedicated attorneys have years of experience handling claims involving multiple insurance policies and can help review your claim to determine what coverage is available to you.
Call Jones & Swanson at (770) 427-5498 to review your potential claim.
What does underinsured motorist insurance cover?
Underinsured motorist coverage will typically cover accidents involving hit-and-run drivers who can’t be identified and drivers who have no insurance or whose insurance is insufficient to cover all of those who have been injured. Many times, victims of accidents are unaware that such coverage exists, but Georgia law requires that insurance companies make UM coverage available to you when you purchase your policy.
Your insurance policy should provide UM coverage to you and the following individuals:
- Your spouse
- Anyone using your car with your consent
- Any passengers who are in the car
- Relatives of you and your spouse who are living in the same household
