Here are three important things to remember if it happens to you.
Uninsured motorists are drivers who do not have the proper liability coverage for the vehicle they’re driving.
A driver who flees the scene of an accident without exchanging information with the other drivers is also classified as an uninsured motorist. However, if their identity is discovered and they do have insurance coverage, they are no longer considered an uninsured motorist.
The Uninsured Motorist Clause is a common part of automobile insurance policies. It provides coverage when you are involved in a collision with a driver who is uninsured.
If you have been in an accident with an uninsured motorist and your insurance policy includes an Uninsured Motorist Clause, you can collect from your insurance company. However, insurance companies are often motivated to offer the lowest settlements possible, so it is important to have an uninsured accident attorney advocating on your behalf to ensure you collect what you deserve.
