What You Should Know About Uninsured Motorist Coverage
Getting the compensation you need after someone else causes you to suffer in a car accident is not always easy. It can be even more complex when the at-fault driver does not have car insurance. Although it may be more challenging, it is still not impossible to obtain the funds you deserve.
Here at Gamez Law Firm, we know how hard it can be to get the compensation you need after an accident. While other drivers may not have insurance, you can protect yourself from them with uninsured motorist coverage. We have spent 40 years helping our clients recover after injuries, and we want to spread the word about what everyone should know about uninsured motorist coverage.
How You Use This Coverage
Insurance is supposed to offer a safety net for ourselves and anyone we may harm in an accident. Unfortunately, some people do not carry car insurance. This lack of coverage means that when they cause an accident, their victims do not have an easy way to collect compensation.
This is where uninsured motorist coverage comes in. This type of insurance is meant for the victim of an accident, and it may be the only chance for you to get compensation after an accident with a driver without insurance.
Thankfully, this insurance is hard to avoid on accident. The law requires insurance companies to offer you this coverage, and they must have you write and sign a rejection letter for this coverage for you to refuse it officially. If they cannot show this letter, you have the minimum limits of uninsured motorist coverage.
