Staten Island Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists Accident Attorney

Dealing with the aftermath of a car accident in New York is generally a stressful and emotionally draining process, particularly if you have suffered serious injuries during the collision. You assume the other driver’s insurance will cover all of your losses, but this isn’t always the case. New York uninsured/underinsured motorist lawsuits are a complex area of the law and require the assistance of an attorney who has the experience in handling these types of cases.

Ever since 1971, the Staten Island underinsured motorist attorneys at the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm have successfully helped individuals file uninsured/underinsured lawsuits and explore all of the possible avenues for recovering compensation. Don’t give up. We won’t.

Uninsured Driver Accidents

Uninsured motorist accidents are those in which the other driver does not have any type of insurance coverage. New York law provides protection for drivers involved in these types of accidents by requiring all insurance policies for private vehicles sold in the state to include uninsured motorist coverage. This coverage provides compensation for bodily injuries that you, your family or occupants in your car may suffer if you are involved in an accident with a hit and run driver or an uninsured motorist whose negligence causes damages.

Underinsured Driver Accidents

Underinsured driver accidents are those in which the other driver does have some insurance coverage, but not enough to cover all the losses you have incurred as a result of the accident. Underinsured motorist coverage is available with most policies. Although this coverage is not mandatory, it is in your best interest to purchase it in the event that you are involved in a serious accident with a driver who does not have adequate insurance coverage.
