Uninsured Motorist Accidents

You never expect to wind up in an accident when you get behind the wheel, but unfortunately, it happens. When it does, it’s natural to think that the other driver’s insurance provider will reimburse you for medical bills, property damage, and other losses. But what if they’re uninsured?

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • How Many People Drive Without Insurance?

    Although most states require vehicle owners to carry liability insurance, many drivers circumvent the law. In fact, approximately 1 in 8 drivers in the United States are uninsured, according to data from the Insurance Research Council. Some drivers buy insurance to get their vehicle registered, only to cancel their policy, while others simply can’t afford to pay.

    You may be wondering, what happens if you’re involved in a collision with a driver who doesn’t have insurance? The answer depends on where you live.

  • What if I Live in a Traditional Fault-Based State?

    In states that follow a traditional fault-based system, the insurer for the negligent driver is responsible for paying damages to the victim. The problem is, when the at-fault driver is uninsured, there’s no such policy to file a claim against.

    To protect against this scenario, your insurance company may offer uninsured motorist coverage. You’ll pay an additional premium cost but ensure that your medical bills and car damage — which you would otherwise claim against the negligent driver — will be paid by your insurer up to a certain threshold.

    You can also elect to file a lawsuit against the uninsured driver, but there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to collect anything. Many people who are uninsured have very little in the way of money and assets.

  • What if I Live in a No-Fault State?

    In states with no-fault laws, your insurance company pays for your injuries and damages whether you were at fault or not. The good news is, you’re covered no matter what. However, no-fault laws restrict your ability to file a lawsuit unless your case meets minimum standards regarding the severity of your injury and total medical expenses you incur.

  • Can I Sue for Noneconomic Damages?

    You may also elect to pursue a claim against the at-fault driver for noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

  • What Should I Do Following an Accident?

    If you are in a collision with an uninsured motorist, be sure to take the following steps:

    •     Call the Police: No matter the status of the other driver, you should take this step. Documenting the incident is critical to getting your expenses covered.
    •     Gather Information: Collect as much data as possible about the other driver, including name, address, and license number.
    •     Assess the Damage: If possible, take photographs of the damage and scene of the accident.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
