Uninsured, Hit-And-Run And Underinsured Motorists
Dealing with an auto accident is an emotional and stressful process, especially if you’ve sustained serious injuries during the accident. You don’t need the added stress of dealing with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. Filing a claim in New jersey requires a law firm with knowledge and experience in these types of cases.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists in New Jersey
Despite it being required by law in New Jersey, many motor vehicle owners do not carry insurance. All policies sold for private vehicles in the state must include uninsured motorist insurance. Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage will provide you with compensation in the event an uninsured driver injures you. Additionally, it can help you pay medical bills if you are severely injured and the other driver has less coverage than you do.
Some injuries are so severe, the other driver’s insurance is not enough to cover all of your losses because of the accident. Even though underinsured driver insurance isn’t required by law, it is still available with most policies and will help cover costs associated with medical bills, lost wages, or repairs in the event of an auto accident with an underinsured motorist.
