Collecting Compensation Under Your Uninsured Motorist Coverage
If you are hit by an uninsured driver, you may be eligible to receive compensation from your own insurance company under your uninsured motorist coverage. Your insurance company steps into the “shoes” of the other driver to pay for your losses, damages, and injuries as if it was the insurance company for the at-fault driver. However, do not assume that your insurance company will treat you fairly simply because you are its insured.
All insurance companies are in business to make a profit. Paying large accident claims is not part of the company’s plan to make money. Your insurance company will treat your uninsured motorist claim just like every other accident claim it processes. The adjusters and attorneys will fight your claim and search for ways to lower the amount of compensation it must pay to you to settle your claim.
Do not let this happen to you. Contact an uninsured motorist attorney before you talk to your insurance company. Never sign documents or provide statement regarding the accident until you have consulted with an experienced West Palm Beach uninsured motorist attorney.
