Were you injured in a car accident caused by an uninsured driver in California? Learn about uninsured motorist claims and how you can still recover compensation in this educational video by Ventura car accident lawyer Craig Murphy.
Here’s the unfortunate reality here in California: there are a lot of drivers out there on the road, driving without insurance even though the law says that they have to have it. A lot of times, the most dangerous drivers are the ones with no insurance. They cause crashes and they hurt people every day here in Ventura. How can you protect yourself against somebody who doesn’t have insurance when they’re out there zipping around on our roadways?
When you get your insurance policy, you need to make sure that you get uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. That coverage protects you from everybody else out there on the road if they don’t have insurance or they don’t have enough insurance to cover you for all of the injuries and damages that they have caused you. If you don’t have that and you’re hit by an uninsured driver, chances are you don’t have any way of getting any compensation for all of your injuries and damages.
If you have questions about what type of insurance you should have or how much insurance you should have, give me a call. I have been dealing with insurance companies going on 30 years. I don’t sell insurance, I have no interest in insurance companies, and typically I sue them every day, but I do have the experience to sit down with you, go through your policy, and tell you what you need to do to make sure that you’re fully covered and protected, especially if you are hit and injured by someone who has no insurance.
