Uninsured and Under-insured Drivers in Car Accidents

Personal Injury  |  Car Accidents  |  Trucking/Commercial Vehicle Accidents

In Missouri, it is required by law that you have insurance before you can register a vehicle. However, that does not always mean that every driver that collides with you is going to be properly insured or will even have insurance at all. If an accident does occur and you did not cause it, an uninsured or under-insured motorist might mean that you have no avenue for receiving compensation for the financial and/or physical distress that precipitated from the accident.

This does not have to be the end of the line however. When you enlist us, we can help you find compensation in a personal injury case, even if the other driver does not have insurance. We have years of experiencing practicing law in the Branson, Missouri and Southwest Missouri areas—we know how to get your compensation.

Meeting with and speaking with a lawyer when you have been hit by an uninsured or under-insured motorist can make it easier to get compensation from your own insurance policy. If the other driver is simply under-insured, payments form their policy can supplement payments from your own insurance company.

We know that this is a difficult time for you and that insurance companies may try to tie you up in legal jargon. That is why we always take the time to answer any questions you have, in addition to building a case that ensures you get the compensation you need to cover medical bills and lost wages due to your accident.
