Uninsured Motorist Accident Victims
Florida’s Financial Responsibility Law aims to require drivers in Florida to be able to pay for the automobile accidents they cause by having cash or liability insurance coverage with minimum limits adequate to pay up to $25,000 for each injured person, up to a total of $50,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage for each accident they cause. Liability insurance pays to repair or replace the other driver’s car if you cause an accident and pays other people’s medical expenses. It does not pay to repair or replace your own car or for your own injuries. The problems are that: 1) despite the existence of this law, many people drive with no insurance; and 2) even if an at-fault driver does have the minimum required coverage, it may not be nearly enough to compensate you for your injuries and other damages. The smartest thing you can do is to plan for the worst and make sure that your own automobile insurance coverage includes the highest limits you can afford of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist (UIM) coverage.
If you are injured in an accident in which the other driver was at fault and was uninsured or underinsured, it is important to consult an experienced Florida personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights. Contact a car accident lawyer at Young DeLoach PLLC in Central Florida for a free consultation regarding uninsured and underinsured motorist personal injury claims and your right to seek full and fair compensation from your own insurance company.
This is even more important if the at-fault driver has the minimum insurance required by law and his or her insurance coverage is offering to pay you the full amount in settlement. It seems like a “no-brainer” to accept it, but by doing so you could inadvertently lose your right to collect benefits from your own UIM coverage. At Young DeLoach PLLC, our personal injury attorneys understand all the nuances of the law and keep abreast of all the most recent changes in order to serve our clients well. If you follow the requirements of your insurance policy and your insurance company denies or delays payment of a valid claim, you may be able to prevail in an insurance bad faith claim. The best way to make sure you get what you are entitled to is to have an experienced car accident lawyer on the case from the beginning.
You can rely on Young DeLoach PLLC for effective representation and personal client service in all types of uninsured and underinsured accident cases. To learn if we can be of assistance to you, please contact a Central Florida accident lawyer today for a free consultation. You pay nothing unless we win compensation for you.
