It's a disturbing fact that a high percentage of motorists in Wisconsin and nationwide are uninsured or do not carry sufficient insurance to cover costs following a serious accident. It's why we encourage motorists to carry uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) protection. Have your auto insurance provider explain what coverage you have in this regard. Many consumers do not fully understand what $50,000 of Uninsured Motorist Insurance or Underinsured Motorist Insurance means. Most people should carry a $1 million coverage rather than $100,000 coverage to be truly protected in case of the unexpected. (The cost is minimal, especially considering the potential benefits.)
Following an Accident With an Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist
Once an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist has occurred, it is too late to buy additional insurance to cover the accident. No matter the situation, it is essential to contact an experienced, aggressive personal injury attorney to begin the process of obtaining the maximum compensation available from all sources.
An Experienced Car Accident Attorney Is an Invaluable Source of Help
A collision with a motorist who is uninsured or underinsured may mean that there will be strict limitations as to how much you can collect even from your own insurance company. A personal injury attorney with years of experience (digging into causes of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, determining long-term diagnoses of injured clients, and compelling insurers and other responsible parties to compensate victims) is an invaluable source of help and support.
