Our Ypsilanti auto accident attorneys recently settled an uninsured motorists claim for a woman who suffered serious injuries in a car accident. She suffered orthopedic injuries and a mild traumatic brain injury when her car was struck by another vehicle. The other driver did not have insurance on his vehicle.
We filed an uninsured motorists claim against our client’s own insurance company, Frankenmuth Insurance, to seek compensation for her injuries. She had purchased uninsured motorists coverage for her auto to protect herself in the event she was injured in an accident due to the fault of another driver without insurance. Her policy provided $20,000 in uninsured motorists coverage and Frankenmuth Insurance agreed to pay the entire policy limits. Her medical bills and other no-fault insurance expenses were paid separately from the insurance company.
This unfortunate case illustrates the importance of purchasing uninsured motorists coverage for your cars. The cost of the insurance is very cheap and it is advisable to purchase higher policy limit amounts. For a nominal amount, our client could have increased her policy limits to $100,000 to protect herself against an uninsured driver and would have most likely received those limits in her car accident settlement. Due to the huge number of drivers in Michigan on the roads without car insurance, it is essential that this coverage be purchased by all drivers.
