Car accidents are stressful enough as it is, but when you discover the other motorist does not have enough insurance to cover the damage, things can become much more frustrating. An uninformed motorist may assume that there is nothing else to be done and try to pay for the remainder of the medical bills and repairs out of pocket, which could result in severe financial stress. This could possibly be avoided if the motorist had pursued an underinsured motorist claim.
In the state of Florida, insurance companies are required by law to provide full coverage for their client in the event that the other party is liable for the damages, but does not have enough insurance to cover the damages, if their client has elected this type of coverage. There are even certain circumstances in which the client is entitled to this coverage even when they have not elected it.
However, insurance companies have been known to trick unwary customers into accepting less than maximum compensation in order to save money. Do not let this happen to you. You may have every right to seek full coverage from your insurance if the other motorist is at fault. After an accident, it is always wise to consult with our accident attorney before agreeing on a settlement with your insurance company.
