Fairmont Uninsured And Underinsured Motorist Lawyers
West Virginia law requires all licensed drivers to carry a minimum of $20,000 insurance coverage. Yet up to 10 percent of drivers travel the state’s roads without insurance, and many more are underinsured.
It is not uncommon that a serious car accident with an injury can quickly result in $20,000 worth of medical bills. Weeks or months of medical treatment and associated costs are still to come.
For that alone, uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) insurance is mandatory in West Virginia for personal injury and damage to property. If an uninsured or underinsured motorist injures you or someone you love in an accident, your UM/UIM coverage protects members of your family who are passengers in your car or other people who have permission to drive your car.
Unfortunately, insurance providers you have loyally paid premiums to for years can dispute the amount of compensation you are rightfully owed following the accident.
