Durham Uninsured Motorist Accident Attorney

Claims Involving Drivers with No Insurance

Many people aren’t aware of what uninsured motorist coverage is, or whether they even need it. However, every driver on the road should elect to have uninsured motorist coverage as it is a necessity for all. If you are hit by a driver with no insurance or insufficient coverage, your injuries will be your responsibility, and yours alone--unless you have uninsured motorist coverage. In North Carolina, the law does not allow drivers to reject uninsured motorist coverage.

Uninsured Claims Can Also Be Used for Hit and Runs

Many people wonder whether they will be able to make an uninsured motorist claim after they have been involved in a hit and run, but the answer is dependent on a number of factors. In order to make a successful claim under this specific coverage, you must immediately report your injuries and damages to your insurance company, as well as the authorities. Also, the vehicle must have made actual physical contact with yours, otherwise you will not be able to make an uninsured motorist claim. Since many drivers carry only the minimum coverage they are required to, as well as refrain from obtaining insurance altogether, uninsured motorist coverage is a vital part of protecting yourself.
