Uninsured Motorist Claims in Pennsylvania
Fight for Compensation with a Harrisburg Car Accident Lawyer
If you are involved in a car accident with a negligent driver who is uninsured (or who does not have enough liability insurance to cover the costs of your injuries and other damages), you may be able to file a claim against your own uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) motorist policy. UM/UIM coverage is not mandatory in the state of Pennsylvania, but it is highly recommended, considering an estimated 1 in 7 drivers are uninsured.
In order to recover damages from your own insurance company, you must have had uninsured/underinsured motorist protection in effect on your auto insurance policy at the time of the accident. The maximum amount you can recover depends on the limits you chose when you bought the policy.
