UNINSURED/UNDERINSURED MOTORIST COVERAGE A lot of people don't realize that one of the most important areas of automobile insurance coverage is for damages caused by another motorist who is uninsured, or underinsured, meaning that he or she does not have enough coverage to compensate someone injured by them in an accident. People also may not understand that carrying the minimum mandatory uninsured/underinsured coverage of $25,000.00 per person or $50,000.00 per accident may not be enough to cover their damages resulting from an accident, such as medical bills, lost wages and loss of earning capacity. It is important to carry enough coverage to protect yourself when a party responsible for an accident does not have enough insurance. As a plaintiff's attorney, I can help you assess your legal needs and legal rights before and/or after an accident. Call for a free consultation regarding your legal rights and remedies. I look forward to meeting with you. Law Office of John S.
