Missouri law requires all drivers in the state to have car insurance. Unfortunately, many motorists still fail to acquire that coverage.

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Accident Coverage- Call Popham Law

Though estimates of uninsured vehicles vary widely across the state, the Missouri Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions & Professional Registration (DIFP) in 2018 reported twenty-seven counties have an estimated rate of over 20 percent, and 13 counties over 25 percent of registered vehicles are estimates to lack liability insurance. Back in 2010, the Missouri Highway Patrol issued more than 22,000 citations to drivers who couldn't provide proof of car insurance. It is likely that number has increased.

If you were in an accident with an individual who doesn't have auto insurance or who doesn't have the lawfully required minimum for coverage (underinsured), then you may be wondering, "How can I get this person to cover both property damage as well as my medical costs and other associated financial damages?"

One solution is through uninsured and underinsured motorist accident coverage. This type of coverage provides benefits if the other driver doesn’t have enough insurance to compensate for your injuries. This solution can also be useful in hit-and-run situations.

Fortunately, Missouri law also requires insurance policies to include uninsured motorist coverage as part of your auto insurance policy. Even so, you need to have an experienced uninsured accident attorney at your side to deal with the insurance company to make sure that you receive fair and satisfactory compensation for the injuries you sustained.

Uninsured motorist coverage may be able to cover:

• The costs of your property damage and personal injuries and this coverage will not increase your insurance premiums.

• The difference in coverage for your property damage and personal injuries if you are in a car accident with an underinsured driver - meaning that your insurance will cover what was not covered by the other driver’s insurance company.

Making an Uninsured Motorist Claim

When making an uninsured motorist claim, it is still essential to prove that the other driver caused the property damage as well as your injuries. A personal injury attorney from Popham Law will diligently investigate the accident and gather as much documentation and eyewitness testimony as possible to prove that the uninsured driver was the negligent party.

Moreover, our attorneys at The Popham Law Firm know how to work with insurance companies, whether they are your insurance company or the company that sold the underinsured policy to the driver. We'll always put your interests at the forefront of our litigation strategies, and we will fight, either in Kansas City courts or at the negotiation table, for a fair and reasonable settlement.
