When An Ohio Driver Causes An Accident But Has No Insurance
People who own cars and trucks are required by law to carry insurance coverage for their own protection and for the protection of anyone they might injure. But what happens if the driver who caused the car accident and serious injuries does not have insurance? Or what if your accident was a hit and run and you cannot identify the other car?
If you were injured by an uninsured or underinsured driver, talk to a personal injury lawyer at Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima about your rights under your own insurance policy. We have five convenient office locations in southwestern Ohio and Kentucky, including downtown Cincinnati.
Explaining Your Rights Regarding UM/UIM Insurance Coverage
People who drive irresponsibly are more likely to cause accidents. They are also more likely to not have the insurance coverage required by law. When the person who caused the car crash does not have any insurance or inadequate insurance, you can turn to your own policy for the coverage you need for personal injury. Your uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage will usually correspond with your liability coverage.
Talk to an experienced personal injury attorney about the coverage on your policy. Your insurance company often uses manipulative insurance tactics. They may not explain your full rights, or you may believe that a claim will affect your rates or insurability. Know your rights. Our car accident insurance attorneys want you to have the compensation you need. We can also reassure you that your rates should not be affected if you were not at fault.
