Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Accident Lawyers South Florida

Attorneys Advocate for Clients Injured in Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Accidents in Palm Beach County, Broward County, and Across South Florida

Nearly all drivers understand that they should ask the other driver for their insurance information after being involved in a motor vehicle accident. The path forward is much less clear when it becomes apparent that the other driver does not have proper insurance coverage, or is not insured at all. In these cases, it is important to consult with an attorney who specializes in uninsured & underinsured motorist accidents before agreeing to any offer from the insurance company.

The insurance company is highly motivated to settle your claim for the lowest possible amount. Agreeing to accept an amount from the insurance company can foreclose other potential avenues of recovery. Our uninsured & underinsured motorist accident attorneys at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. can help you evaluate your uninsured or underinsured motorist accident case and explore possible ways to protect your right to be fully compensated for injuries sustained in an accident that a negligent driver caused, even if that driver failed to maintain the legally mandated level of insurance coverage. We are dedicated to helping members of the South Florida community receive full and fair compensation in personal injury cases caused by negligent or reckless drivers, and we offer a free initial meeting to discuss your options in all cases.

Frequently Asked Questions About South Florida Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Accidents

FAQ: My child was injured in a car accident where the at-fault driver did not have sufficient insurance coverage. Can my insurance coverage apply?

Yes. Uninsured motorist coverage typically also applies to certain family members of the individual who was insured. It may also apply if your child was injured by an underinsured or uninsured motorist while walking, playing outdoors, or riding his or her bicycle.

FAQ: What is bodily injury liability insurance? Will it help me in an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim?

Bodily injury liability insurance is a type of insurance that is designed to compensate others for injuries sustained in a car accident that was caused by your negligence. This type of insurance is optional in Florida, and it is often purchased in order to protect drivers against personal injury lawsuits that are brought against them. This type of insurance covers only individuals who are not otherwise covered by your state-mandated insurance coverage.
