Uninsured Motorist Claims in Florida

Jacksonville Car Accident Attorney Pursues Compensation

Car owners in the state of Florida are required to carry a minimum of $10,000 personal injury protection and a minimum of $10,000 no-fault property damage liability insurance. Even with this law in place, drivers fail to carry car insurance for a variety of reasons. Injured parties involved in a car accident caused by a driver who does not have adequate insurance coverage will be placed in a difficult situation. At The Costantino Law Firm, we can help you resolve this matter. If a negligent driver without insurance caused your injury, our Jacksonville personal injury lawyer can take action to get you the compensation you deserve.

Understanding Uninsured Motorist Claims

Uninsured motorist (UM) coverage protects you in case the other driver does not have adequate automobile accident or bodily injury insurance coverage. Cases of this kind are similar to car accident claims, except that the client has to file a claim with his or her own insurance company. Keep in mind that filing a claim or lawsuit in an uninsured motorist case is limited by a five-year statute of limitations. Legal complexities exist in these matters, especially if you decide to settle with the at-fault driver with the intention of pursuing UM compensation at a later date. Our firm can help you choose the right course of action to take in such circumstances.

After being involved in a motor vehicle accident, you can incur an ample amount of medical bills and lost wages because of your inability to work. You should not have to pay for the other party's negligence because insurance should cover you. When carelessness on the other individual's part has caused you to turn to your own insurance company for coverage, you will want to ensure that you obtain just compensation. Contact us today for the assistance you need to prevent your insurance company from acting in bad faith.
