In purchasing liability insurance, many people are rightfully advised to purchase uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. This insurance will protect you in the event of an accident with a driver who doesn’t have insurance, or whose insurance is insufficient in regards to the damages or injuries sustained. As you can imagine, this kind of insurance is quite necessary in these specific scenarios. However, many people are concerned and hesitant about filing an uninsured motorist coverage claim, as they fear being penalized by their own insurance company.
Whether you are anticipating a raised premium or being dropped from coverage, neither of these events can legally take place simply because you file either one of these claims on your policy. Your insurance company is prohibited from punishing you in the event you make an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim, and you should never feel discouraged from such. Our personal injury lawyers advise our clients to always add uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage to their policies, and to make the necessary claims when needed.
At The Womac Law Firm, our legal team will work tirelessly to ensure you are taken care of in the event of an accident or injury, particularly if this injury was caused due to the negligence of someone who is underinsured, or not insured at all. We know just how stressful it can be to suddenly find yourself in this kind of situation, and we will apply all 35 years of our experience and skill to your case. Our proven track record of success speaks for itself, and our legal team wants you to focus on your own healing while we handle the rest of the details of your case for you.
