Uninsured Motorists

Car Accidents Caused By Uninsured Motorists

While it is typically a law in every state that all drivers must be able to show proof of insurance to show that they will be able to cover any physical and personal damage that might occur in a potential motor vehicle accident, approximately 14.7% of drivers in the United States are uninsured. It is a sad truth, unfortunately, that not every driver in Pennsylvania upholds this responsibility and many simply drive without the proper level of coverage. In other instances, drivers can be dropped from their coverage or simply cannot afford to make the payments. Regardless of their reasoning, however, if you are involved in a car accident with an uninsured motorist, you will be the one who suffers.

Many insurance companies provide what is known as uninsured motorist coverage. This will allow you to purchase for yourself coverage so that if you are involved with an accident with a driver that is responsible, but unable to pay for the damages, you will not be left between a rock and a hard place. Although you might have purchased the correct amount of coverage, your insurance company could try to refuse to give you the necessary amount of compensation. Insurance companies are, after all, a business first and foremost and are only interested in the bottom dollar. For this reason, you should not waste time in securing the legal assistance that you deserve.
