Protecting Yourself and Your Family
Even if you are the most careful driver you know, even if you’ve never been in an accident before, you can get in an accident at any time because of other drivers or factors beyond your control. Because you can’t predict getting in an accident, it’s important to have adequate auto insurance coverage to protect yourself and your family members from unnecessary financial strife following the accident.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage: In Kentucky and Indiana, this coverage is required but can be rejected in writing.
Underinsured Motorist Bodily Injury Coverage: In Indiana, this coverage is required but can be rejected in writing.
Many people have been paying for uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage and don’t even realize it’s part of their policies. Many others do not know how much coverage they are paying for, which is why it is so important to check the declarations page of your insurance policy, especially after an auto accident. You can change your coverage at any time, not just once your policy is up for renewal.
It can be difficult to know how much insurance coverage is enough to protect you and your family. Our attorneys have met numerous people who did not have enough insurance coverage to provide them with the help they needed after suffering severe accident injuries.
Getting the Coverage You Are Entitled To
Once you get in an accident and you or one of your loved ones is injured, you rely on your insurance company to provide you with the compensation you need to get medical care and replace lost wages and other losses. Unfortunately, many auto insurance companies utilize a variety of tactics to deny or delay payment of your claim. At a time like this, you need an experienced accident lawyer to deal with the insurance company and get you the compensation to which you are entitled.
