In recent years, it has become too common that the motorist at fault for an accident has also violated the law by operating their car or other motor vehicle without insurance or with dollar policy limits that are too low to adequately compensate the victim for their injuries or losses. Most accident victims do not realize that their own car insurance policies may provide them with monetary compensation if they are injured by another car driver who has no insurance or coverage that is inadequate to compensate for the loss. These claims are respectively called uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist claims. Our experience in making these types of claims is extensive and one of our attorneys has written many articles on this type of insurance coverage.
