What Happens if I Get Hit by an Uninsured Driver?

Typically, a negligent driver's insurer will pay for the medical expenses and property damage related to a traffic accident. When an uninsured or underinsured driver causes an accident, car accident victims must seek uninsured motorist coverage from their own insurers.

The attorneys at the Independence, Missouri, law firm of Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, P.C., specialize in complex personal injury litigation. Our attorneys represent car accident victims with serious injuries and can help individuals get the insurance coverage they are contractually owed.

Our consultations are free and we work on a contingency basis. To speak with one of our attorneys, call 888-353-0491 or contact us online.

Underinsured Missouri Drivers

Missouri law mandates that drivers carry a minimum amount of insurance. All drivers in Missouri must carry at least the following levels of car accident coverage:

  • $25,000 per person for physical injury
  • $50,000 per traffic accident for physical injuries
  • $10,000 per crash for property damage

A serious car accident can easily result in medical and property expenses beyond these minimum coverage levels. Any additional funds typically come from a driver's underinsured motorist coverage.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Many drivers allow their insurance to lapse and therefore drive wholly uninsured. These individuals typically do not have the financial resources to pay for the damages arising out of an accident, so a Missouri motorist must rely on his or her uninsured motorist coverage.

Missouri law requires a minimum of $25,000 in uninsured motorist coverage per person for physical injuries and $50,000 for physical injuries per accident.
