Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists Claims Require Attorney Assistance
Being in a serious accident can be life-changing and overwhelming. You are faced with mounting medical bills and may be unable to work so that you are losing income. If the accident was caused by the negligence of an uninsured or underinsured driver, your stress is likely increased as you question how you will ever be able to recover financially as well as physically from this traumatic event.
If there can be any good news, it is that New York law requires you to have uninsured/underinsured coverage as part of your own insurance policy. This type of coverage provides some compensation for you and your passengers if you are an in an accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist. It also provides coverage for you if you suffer injuries caused by a hit-and-run driver. If you or someone in your household are injured in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, your uninsured/underinsured policy coverage will cover some of your damages.
