How Does An Uninsured Motorist Claim Apply In Florida?
In this article, you will discover:
- What an uninsured motorist claim is
- Which attorney you should hire
An uninsured motorist claim is a claim where the person who causes the crash either does not have insurance or they do not have enough insurance. In Florida, unfortunately, it is not required that drivers carry bodily injury protection coverage. Bodily injury is a liability insurance that pays the person that you hit damages in the event that you are negligent. Because it is not required in Florida, it is recommended that everyone have uninsured motorist coverage. That protects you in the event that someone on the road who is not paying attention and does not have insurance hits you.
Does It Really Matter What Attorney I Hire In Terms Of Getting A Proper Settlement Or A Verdict Amount?
We believe it does matter which attorney you hire. Insurance companies track attorneys. They know the ones that are the settlement machines or the ones that are just taking the best final offer, whatever amount that may be potentially leaving thousands of dollars on the table.
If an attorney cannot take the time to meet with you, it might be a sign that they do not care about you or your case. Once you speak with that attorney, you will get a good idea and gauge them as if whether or not they care about you as a human being. No case is easy, so you want an attorney who is willing to go the distance, who cares about you and your family, and understands that it is a difficult journey.
