What happens if you are in an accident with an uninsured/underinsured motorist? Ft. Myers, Florida Personal Injury Attorney has the answer.September 19, 2012 | Category: Uninsured Motorist Claims | Share
Currently, Floridians are required by law to carry a minimum coverage of $10,000 personal injury protection (PIP) and $10,000 property damage liability (PDL) as long as they have a valid Florida license plate. Despite this law, people involved in accidents may find that the driver causing the accident does not have this insurance or is underinsured.
So what happens to the injured? If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured/underinsured motorist, you may be entitled to compensation from your own policy or that of a relative.
“Insurance companies may not automatically pay uninsured or underinsured claims,” says Randall Spivey of Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A. Ft. Myers, FL Attorney Spivey has personal experience handling these cases. Recently Spivey Law Firm received a jury award for its client in the amount of $3 million in an underinsured case.
