Accidents Involving Uninsured And Underinsured Motorists

Under Florida law, drivers are only required to carry $10,000 in personal injury protection insurance and $10,000 in property damage liability insurance. Bodily injury insurance coverages for injuries caused to others are not required by Florida law, which is why we always recommend you buy uninsured and underinsured motorist coverages. This minimal amount of coverage doesn't even begin to cover the costs of medical treatment, let alone the lost wages and pain and suffering injury victims experience after an accident.

You already have to deal with physical pain and suffering after an accident. You shouldn't have the additional burden of facing a mountain of debt because the driver who caused you injury wasn't insured. Always buy uninsured and underinsured motorist coverages when buying automobile insurance.

Our attorneys do everything in their power to get clients the compensation they deserve. We pursue every legal path available — including a claim against our clients own insurance companies.

It is true that uninsured and underinsured motorist claims are against your own insurance company seeking benefits that have been purchased. You should not feel guilty seeking benefits that have been purchased and are legally compensable. Even though the benefit has been bought and paid, many insurance companies will treat you as their adversary. Expert legal advice is important.
