Uninsured Motorist Claims

Claiming Financial Compensation from an Uninsured Motorist

Red and blue cars in rearend accident

State law requires drivers to have insurance coverage, but many have either no bodily injury insurance or insufficient bodily injury insurance coverage to fully pay the accident victim's medical expenses and lost wages. Given the difficulties of today's economy, the percentage of drivers without insurance is on the increase.

In fact, a study conducted by the Insurance Research Counsel reports that our state has one of the highest rates of uninsured motorists in the nation, at 23%. If you have been injured by an uninsured or underinsured driver, contact Pittman Law Firm, P.L. for a consultation to learn more about how our Fort Myers car accident lawyers can help you!

Uninsured Motorists and Injury Claims in Fort Myers

Searching for an attorney for an uninsured motorist claim in Ft. Myers? If you have been injured in a car accident caused by an uninsured driver, we can help you file a claim with your own insurance company for the compensation you deserve. Many people are initially reluctant to file a claim against their own insurance company for one of the following reasons:

  • For fear of being dropped
  • Having their rates increase
  • Having been a customer for a long time

However, it is important to understand that Uninsured Motorist coverage is a separate coverage that you may have which is specifically to protect you in the event of being injured by another driver who was either uninsured or underinsured-your rates should not be affected by such a claim.

Looking for a lawyer for an auto accident in Fort Myers, FL?

In addition to assisting you with filing a claim under your own policy, we may be able to represent you in a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver. Remember, this is why a driver should have liability insurance-to protect against being sued after causing an accident. After you have been obeying the law and paying for insurance coverage, you should not let the other driver get away with cheating the system and causing your accident. If successful, your claim could result in a judgment in your favor, which you could use to secure a property lien or wage garnishment to supply you with the financial compensation you deserve.
