Our Michigan automotive accident lawyers can help you if you were injured by a driver without car or motorcycle insurance. With the number of uninsured drivers and riders in Michigan today, it would not be surprising if your accident was caused by someone who did not have an insurance policy. Even in this situation, we can often help you get a settlement for your injures.
All auto insurance companies sell "uninsured motorists coverage" as part of a standard auto insurance policy. This coverage, also referred to as "UM Coverage" on the policy, provides insurance for pain and suffering settlements in the event the accident was caused by a driver or rider without a liability policy on the vehicle. You may not even know you have this coverage.
What are the Sources of Uninsured Motorists Coverage?
There are a number of potential different sources of uninsured motorists coverage for you after an accident. This can include our own insurance policy or the policy of a family member that you lived with at the time of the accident. If you were a passenger in the accident, you may be eligible to file a claim with the insurer of the vehicle you were in at the time of the accident.
Do These Things Immediately After Your Accident
The uninsured motorist benefits provision in many insurance policies require that you report the accident to the police and the insurance company within twenty-four hours after the accident. If you fail to file written reports with the police or the insurance company, your claim may be completely destroyed. The smart thing to do is to report the accident within twenty-four hours to avoid this penalty.
