Coral Gables Uninsured & Underinsured Drivers
Accidents Involving Drivers without Insurance
While vehicle operators in this state have a legal obligation to carry some form of auto insurance, they are not required to purchase bodily injury coverage. If you are hurt in an accident caused by a driver without bodily injury coverage, you will be unable to pursue a claim against the driver's insurance carrier for monetary damages. Purchasing uninsured motorist (UM) coverage is one way to protect yourself against uninsured or underinsured drivers.
With UM coverage, you can file a claim with your own insurance carrier for compensation to cover injury-related expenses such as:
- Medical treatment
- Pain, suffering and emotional trauma
- Property damage
If the accident resulted in permanent disabilities, disfigurement or death, you may also have the legal right to file a lawsuit for damages. Contact a Coral Gables personal injury lawyer from Diamond Law, P.A. at once if you have been hurt in an accident caused by an insured or underinsured driver. My firm will review your case and give you valuable advice regarding your personal injury compensation options.
