In a study done by the Insurance Research Council, it was found that in 2019, 1 in 8 drivers were uninsured, setting the countrywide uninsured motorist rate at 12.9%. Not only is Florida ranked in the top 10 states for the most uninsured motorists, but the study also found that uninsured drivers ultimately cause the increase in cost of insurance for those who do comply with the laws surrounding car insurance. Other studies have found that uninsured drivers who break the laws about insurance are more likely to break other traffic laws and cause accidents. If you’ve been injured by a negligent, uninsured motorist, you shouldn’t have to suffer the physical, emotional and financial damages they caused! Call today for a free consultation with our Fort Myers uninsured motorist accident injury lawyers and learn more about your options.
When an accident occurs, one of the first things you might be wondering about is what it will cost you. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be faced with thousands of dollars of bills. A vehicle accident is a frightening and traumatizing experience that has the potential to cause not only physical injuries, but emotional and psychological damages that might require therapy. This typically is not covered by insurance and can be extremely costly.
You may also be limited as to what you can do physically while recovering which can keep you from returning to your job for weeks, months or unfortunately sometimes indefinitely. This causes additional financial strain.
When you work with one of our Fort Myers uninsured motorist accident injury lawyers, they can help you secure compensation for the costs of things like:
- Hospital stays
- ER visits
- Scans, X-rays & MRIs
- Physical therapy
- Chiropractic care
- Ambulance transport
- Lost wages
- And more!
What The Florida Law Group Can Do For You
You are probably wondering what happens when you collide with a driver who cannot pay for the damages. It’s important you know that Florida has “no-fault insurance,” laws, which allow you to be covered by your own policy for up to $10,000 in damages. Unfortunately, severe injuries or vehicle replacement can easily surpass this amount. However, when the other driver didn’t have insurance, you can’t sue them for damages, as they will not have enough in income or assets to be able to cover the costs of your injuries.
That is why you need to work with experienced Fort Myers uninsured motorist accident injury lawyers who can help you file an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim with your own insurance company so that you can pursue full and fair compensation. Call today for a free consultation! We will help you determine if you have an uninsured motorist policy, file a claim with your insurance company, and help you secure an offer that isn’t below the cost and value of your injuries.
