Uninsured Motorist Claims in Queens
Queens Car Accident Lawyer
New York is a no-fault state. Every vehicle owner must obtain at least the minimum required auto insurance in order to be issued a registration. If you are involved in an accident, it does not matter who is at fault. Each party's own insurance company takes care of their own damages and injuries. This works unless your own costs exceed the amount of insurance you carry. If the other party was at fault, then you have the option of suing that driver to recover compensation that was not covered by your own insurance. Unfortunately, that's a problem if the other party is not insured, or underinsured. A Queens car accident attorney can help you understand all avenues available to you to help in your recovery.
How does uninsured motorist insurance work?
The minimum requirement for insurance is $50,000 per person. This pays for medical expenses, lost wages and any other expenses related to the accident, no matter who was responsible for the accident. If your expenses exceed the amount of coverage, and the other party does not carry insurance, you could still be compensated if you have uninsured motorist coverage.
If you file a claim under uninsured motorist coverage, you are basically seeking compensation from your own company. Your own car insurance company is very likely to do everything possible to minimize the amount they pay you. It is critical that you have an aggressive, skilled attorney in Queens on your side who has experience and success in recovering compensation in uninsured motorist claims.
