Uninsured Motorist Claims in North Carolina and South Carolina
A Car Accident Attorney can Help You!
All drivers are required to carry financial liability coverage if they wish to operate a vehicle on public roads. However, not all drivers follow this law, and despite stiff penalties for being caught, many drivers roll the dice every day and drive away without insurance for their car or their actions while in it. This is a serious problem for other drivers, who may quickly find their ability to pursue the other driver for compensation for their losses is severely limited due to this lack of a financial backing. This means you’ll need help, and you should not hesitate to seek it from a qualified and experienced North Carolina car accident lawyer.

The Dangers of Uninsured Motorists
Some estimates indicate that as many as one out of every four drivers doesn’t carry car insurance in some places. This means the threat of being in an accident with one of these drivers is one you shouldn’t ignore. While insurance is a good thing to have to protect the investment you make in your car, liability coverage goes so much further to protect you and those around you from the financial burden incurred from a collision.
When a driver doesn’t have this insurance, they are solely responsible for their actions, and if they’re found to be at fault for an accident they’ll be responsible for compensating the other party for the damages they have caused. However, few people can afford the true costs of a car accident, which means that even if you file a lawsuit against them it’s unlikely you’ll receive the compensation you need and deserve.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage
How can you protect yourself from the danger of uninsured drivers? The best way is to purchase uninsured motorist coverage with your car insurance policy. This coverage kicks in when you are involved in an accident with a driver who doesn’t have insurance coverage in order to make sure you receive the financial compensation you need. And perhaps the best part is uninsured motorist coverage isn’t that expensive, adding just a few dollars a month to your premiums.
Uninsured motorist insurance can cover:
- Hospital and ambulance bills
- Continual treatment costs
- Vehicle and property damage
- Lost income
Because uninsured motorist claims can become complex fairly quickly, it’s strongly advised you retain legal representation as soon as possible if you are injured in one of these accidents. At The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, we firmly believe that protecting your rights should be our highest priority as your attorney, but we also understand that justice isn’t always given right away and sometimes must be fought for.
