Queens Uninsured Motorists Accident Attorney
The American Insurance Institute reports that 25 percent of drivers in the United States are uninsured or underinsured. If you were involved in a car accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you may have options
for recovering compensation for property damage and personal injury. If you carry an uninsured motorist insurance (UIM) rider on your policy, you may be able to file a claim against your own insurance company. However, just because the claim is against your own policy, don’t expect to be treated royally. Insurance companies don’t like paying fair claims to anyone, including their own customers.
Since 1971, the Queens underinsured motorist attorneys at the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm have successfully helped plaintiffs file claims against their UIM policies and find all the possible avenues for recovering compensation. Don’t give up. We don’t.
What Is Uninsured Motorist Coverage?
In New York, it is mandatory for each policyholder to have uninsured motorist coverage. This coverage provides compensation for bodily injuries that you, your family or occupants of your vehicle may suffer if you are involved in an accident with a hit and run driver or an uninsured motorist whose negligence causes damages.
Your uninsured motorist policy provides coverage for your injuries in any New York accident where an uninsured motorist is legally responsible for causing you personal injuries, such as if you are injured while walking down the or standing in a parking lot or waiting for a bus.
If you were injured due to the negligent actions of an uninsured or underinsured motorist, our Queens uninsured motorist attorneys are here to help.
When Is a Driver Considered Uninsured?
An uninsured driver is one who:
- Has no insurance
- Has insurance that does not meet state-mandated minimum liability requirements
- Has an auto policy, but their insurance company denied your claim
