Gainesville Uninsured Motorist Attorneys
Did You Just Discover that the Driver Who Caused Your Accident Is Not Insured?
Year after year, Florida ranks among the top five states for the number of uninsured motorists operating vehicles on state roadways. In many cases, that means there is insufficient coverage to compensate the victims involved in a crash. For this reason, it is most important that you purchase "uninsured" and "underinsured" coverage to protect against unexpected expenses such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
At Schackow & Mercadante, our trial lawyers are very familiar with determining benefits that you may or may not know about, including:
Uninsured Motorists Coverage
If the other driver in an accident has no liability insurance, your uninsured motorist policy will cover expenses up to the amount of coverage purchased. Uninsured insurance coverage may apply if you are injured in a hit-and-run accident where the at-fault driver was not identified.
Underinsured Motorists Coverage
If the other driver has inadequate liability insurance to cover your damages in the event of an accident, your underinsured coverage will kick in to provide supplemental compensation for your injuries.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
You also have the minimum amount of personal injury protection as required by state law available to assist with your medical bills. To learn more, visit our page on Florida no-fault insurance coverage and requirements.
There are many variances and nuances to automobile insurance policies, so it is always important to consult with an attorney. Our injury lawyers are well-versed in handling all types of vehicular accident cases and have a thorough understanding of how Florida insurance laws can be applied to your advantage.
