When the Negligent Driver Does Not Have Sufficient Insurance
Car accident cases, at their heart, are insurance issues. In most cases, it is ultimately that driver’s insurance company that provides compensation to the motor vehicle accident victim. What happens when the negligent driver does not have sufficient insurance coverage? What happens when the negligent driver has no insurance coverage? Does that mean you will not be able to get compensation for the injuries you suffered? Not necessarily.
With more than 75 years of combined experience on our side — experience that includes a great deal of work with insurance companies — the Pittsburgh attorneys at Friday & Cox LLC are committed to protecting your rights at every turn possible. We know the right steps to take to protect you from covering the expenses on your own. Contact our Pittsburgh uninsured driver attorneys today to schedule a free consultation.
Your Insurance Policy Can Play a Role
You may not even be aware of it, but your insurance policy may include uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage is designed specifically for these situations. If the negligent driver does not have sufficient coverage, we will get everything we can from his or her policy and then pursue additional compensation from your own insurance company. This will not cause your insurance premiums to increase, since you did not cause the car accident. If the negligent driver has no coverage at all, we will go straight to your insurance company to help you get the money you need.

If the police are unable to find the driver who caused the accident, hit-and-run accidents are handled in much the same way as uninsured motorist accidents. Our car accident lawyers will go through your own insurance coverage to get you the compensation you are entitled.
