UNDERINSURED MOTORIST CLAIMS
KNOWING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS IN FORT LAUDERDALE, FL
If you were injured in a car accident caused by another driver, you have a right to demand compensation for everything from your lost income and medical expenses to your pain and suffering. Under state law, all drivers are required to carry a minimum of $10,000 in liability insurance for bodily injury to cover each person in an accident and up to $20,000 per crash and $10,000 for property damage. Unfortunately, a large percentage of drivers choose to purchase only the bare minimum of coverage in an attempt to cut down on expenses. When doing so, a lot of times these basic policies do not cover accidents when involving underinsured or uninsured drivers. This approach only works in the short term: while it may save money on insurance premiums, it exposes the driver to significant financial liability in the event of a car crash. If the accident victim's economic losses are greater than the coverage that is available under the policy, the driver who is at fault for the collision can be sued for the remainder of the claim.
