What Happens if You're Hit by an Uninsured Motorist?

You’re buzzing down the freeway without a care in the world, when all of a sudden you’re hit by a car. After you assess that everyone involved is alive and breathing, you figure that insurance will take care of it all, including your medical bills. Right? Wrong. The person that hit you is not insured.

Even if you have uninsured or under-insured motorist coverage through your own insurance, the state of Nevada does not require coverage for property damage through these plans. Your insurance will pay for your injuries. Maybe. It depends on how much coverage you bought, among other factors. It can be a long and involved process. Meanwhile, you must meet all of the deductibles and your life is on hold due to missed work, lack of transportation, and the whole mess that comes with being in a car accident.

While you can control your own actions, you can’t control the actions of everyone else on the road. To learn more about getting fully compensated in a car wreck, or to find an uninsured motorist lawyer in Las Vegas, contact the office of Daniel Simon at (702) 364-1650.
