Being involved in any accident on the road is not an experience most people look forward to. Then when you find out it’s with an uninsured driver, a whole new level of panic comes to mind. Unfortunately, this is a pretty common occurrence and the Accident Recovery Team receives many calls from clients regarding this scenario. If this happens to you, it’s important to understand your rights and the Accident Recovery Team can help.
You’re Covered with Your Insurance
If you’re involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, know that your own auto insurance is responsible for coverage. Every auto policy issued in the State of Kansas is required to include uninsured driver coverage. So as long as your auto insurance is in good standing, you’re covered! With your auto insurance, you have coverage in the event of an accident with someone who doesn’t have insurance. This means that your insurance company needs to step in if the other driver is uninsured.
Your insurance should provide the very same coverage that you would have been afforded if the other driver had insurance. This may be a part of your policy that your insurance company doesn’t remind you of, but it’s there. In our experience, some insurance adjusters fail to mention this coverage when discussing an accident with an uninsured driver. Knowing the coverage is included in your policy is to your advantage. Having an experienced attorney on your side is the best way to insure your insurance covers what’s required of them.
