If you own and operate a motor vehicle, you are legally required to carry insurance. Unfortunately, not all drivers uphold their legal responsibilities. It is estimated that as many as one in seven, (or 14 percent) of Missouri drivers do not carry auto insurance. Still other drivers are not properly insured if they are responsible for causing severe injuries. What can you do if you were injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist? Your first step should be to contact the personal injury attorneys of Carter Law Offices.
Our law firm has helped numerous people throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area recover compensation for their injuries. Our founder and principal attorney Doug Carter understands what is necessary to achieve a financial recovery for our clients, even when the other driver is uninsured or underinsured.
Searching for Every Source of Compensation
After a car accident, you need someone on your side who knows where to look to get the compensation you need for your medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. If your injuries were caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver, our law firm will closely review your insurance policy. If you have uninsured or underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage, our law firm will help you make a claim against your own policy for your damages.
It is important to realize that even though you may have faithfully paid insurance premiums for years, your insurer is not your ally in these situations. Your carrier may do everything it can to limit what it pays to you. Our law firm will be dedicated to fighting for your full recovery, whether in settlement negotiations, or in trial.
