Uninsured / Under-Insured Motorist Accidents
In 2015, an estimated 12% of Georgia drivers did not have auto insurance.** Although Georgia requires all drivers to have auto insurance, unfortunately, everyone does not abide by this law. As a result, the possibility of being injured by an uninsured driver is a reality. If you have been injured, or have suffered property damage in a vehicle accident, you may be able to obtain compensation, even if the other driver did not have insurance. If you carry uninsured driver coverage, a claim can be made against your own insurance company up to the limits of your coverage.
Likewise, if the at-fault driver does not have enough insurance coverage to cover your damages, a claim can be made against your own insurance company up to the limit of your under-insured motorist policy. You need an attorney who understands how to navigate this type of claim. Give Walker Law a call right a way to ensure peace of mind.
