Hit By An Uninsured Driver
Were You In An Accident With An Uninsured Driver?
In Florida, drivers are not required to carry bodily injury coverage – which covers you if someone injures you in an accident. Under that circumstance, the driver would be considered to be “uninsured.” If you were injured in an accident caused by an uninsured driver, you should contact a lawyer about your options as soon as possible. One of our knowledgeable and experienced personal injury attorneys will be able to assist you.

What Are My Options When The At-Fault Driver Is Uninsured?
Auto accidents caused by uninsured drivers can be complicated. Florida is an at-fault state, which complicates the process of getting proper compensation after an auto accident. The other driver’s lack of insurance complicates things further. Your options for recovery in these cases include:
- Collecting payment for damages and injuries from your insurance company
- Accessing any additional auto coverage you have, such as uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage
- Seeking payment directly from the uninsured driver
If your insurance company refuses to cover your costs, then you have the option to seek payment from the at-fault party. Uninsured drivers can often be held accountable in cases where the injuries:
- Cause a significant and permanent loss of important bodily function
- Consists of a permanent injury such as disfigurement
- Result in death
Allow one of our experienced attorneys to negotiate with your insurance company and deal with the at-fault driver on your behalf.
