Injured in an Accident Caused by an
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist?
Contact the Experienced Attorneys of Whiteman Burdette in Fairmont, WV
West Virginia law requires all licensed drivers to carry a minimum of $20,000 insurance coverage. However, up to 10 percent of drivers travel the state’s roads without insurance, and many more are underinsured. The uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your own insurance policy helps ensure that you have some degree of insurance protection in the event that you are injured by an irresponsible driver. If you have been injured in an automobile accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist in Fairmont, or throughout our north-central West Virginia service area, contact the experienced attorneys of Whiteman Burdette immediately.
Has Your Insurance Company Denied Rightful Uninsured Motorist Coverage?
It is not uncommon that a serious car accident with an injury can quickly exceed $20,000 worth of medical bills, sometimes in the emergency room alone, with weeks to years of medical treatment and associated costs yet to come. 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, as well as other people who have permission to drive your car. Unfortunately, your insurance company, to whom you have loyally paid premiums to for years, can dispute the amount of compensation you are rightfully owed following the accident. If you are being denied your rightful insurance coverage, contact us right away. In addition to your UM/UIM coverage, additional financial compensation may be required to cover your medical bills. However, your UM/UIM must first be exhausted.
