Skilled law firm represents people involved in collisions with uninsured drivers
If you are in an accident with an uninsured driver, you can file an insurance claim if you carry uninsured motorist coverage. If you don’t carry that coverage, you may be able to bring a legal claim against the driver. Sometimes uninsured drivers don’t have insurance because they can’t afford it. But in other cases, they do have assets. We’ll investigate to discover whether it makes sense to file a legal claim against the uninsured motorist.
