Call Orlando Uninsured Motorist Accident Lawyers
If You Were Hurt In A Collision Caused By A Driver Who Didn’t Have Insurance (Or Didn’t Have Enough Insurance), You Still Deserve Justice! Our Aggressive Auto Accident Attorneys Can Help You Fight For Maximum Compensation.
State laws require every driver to carry a minimum of $10,000 in PIP (personal injury protection coverage) and a minimum of $10,000 in PDL (property damage liability coverage) , but not every Florida driver follows this important law. According to a 2021 study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC), Florida ranks 6th in the nation in terms of the amount of uninsured motorists. That study estimates that about 20.4% of Florida drivers in 2019 were driving illegally, without insurance. Especially in Orange County, one of Florida’s most populated and auto-accident-prone cities, the rate of uninsured drivers is high. Research shows that uninsured drivers are as much as 34% more likely to get in accidents.
If you were injured in an accident that was caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver, you may be able to seek compensation for the costs of your injuries through your own insurance company. However, recovering damages can be complicated in these situations, and your own insurance company will likely not be willing to pay out the full amount your injuries are worth without a fight. That’s why you need to enlist the help of our experienced Orlando uninsured motorist accident lawyers! We will give you the best chances at recovering the highest amount possible. Call today to schedule a free consultation and learn what our award-winning law firm can do to serve you!

Types Of Damages Our Orlando Uninsured Motorist Accident Lawyers May Be Able To Win In A Settlement:
Being injured in an accident caused by a driver who was disobeying the law and driving without insurance can be a devastating life experience emotionally, physically, and financially. In typical situations, you would make a claim for all of the costs you incurred through their insurance company, but because they don’t have one, it can be confusing to know where to turn. You might feel hopeless or even desperate – we understand how burdensome the expenses of an accident can be, which is why our Orlando uninsured motorist accident lawyers will do everything in our power to get you paid. How much you can recover depends on many factors, including whether or not you have UM/UIM coverage in your policy, if you shared fault for the accident, how serious your injuries are, how much medical evidence and documentation exists to prove your claim, and more. Every case is different, but our attorneys can accurately value your injuries and ensure that you don’t settle for less than what you deserve! Here are some of the categories in which we frequently recover damages for uninsured motorist accident victims:
- medical bills (for ambulatory transport, air transport, surgeries, hospitalization, imaging tests like X-rays, blood work, medical devices, medications, physical therapy, chiropractic care, copays, deductibles, counseling, etc.)
- lost wages (for any time you had to take off of work without pay as a result of the crash, including overtime pay that you would have otherwise earned)
- pain and suffering (for the mental and physical trauma associated with the accident – there is a way this amount can be quantified!)
- punitive damages (these are damages usually designed to make an example out of the bus driver or company that caused the crash, and is most common in cases where intoxication was involved, but also may apply to uninsured drivers.
