Car Accidents with Uninsured Drivers
Fight for Compensation with a Harrisburg Car Accident Lawyer
If you are involved in an accident with a negligent driver who is uninsured (or who does not have enough liability insurance to cover your injuries), you may be able to file a claim against your own uninsured / underinsured (UM / UIM) motorist policy. 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.
How an Attorney Can Help in an Accident Involving an Uninsured Driver
Auto insurance is complex. Many people do not understand the ins and outs of their own coverage. In cases involving uninsured drivers, our attorneys investigate all applicable insurance policies and thoroughly evaluate policy language in order to pursue maximum compensation for our clients. 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.
