Uninsured Motorist Claims
Uninsured Motorist Claims arise when the at-fault driver does not have liability insurance. Although in Missouri and Illinois, liability insurance is required by law; the unfortunate reality is some people ignore the law. When you are in an accident with an uninsured driver, you should make a claim against your own automobile insurance policy.
Thankfully, the insurance company should not raise your rates for making a claim stemming from an incident that is not your fault. In proceeding with an uninsured motorist claim, Missouri car accident lawyer Michael Sudekum files a claim against your insurance company. The insurance company then stands in the place of the uninsured driver. To establish a claim, a car accident victim must establish that his injuries are the result of the negligence on uninsured driver and that his insurance policy provides coverage for the injuries that he sustained.
