Receiving compensation after a crash with an uninsured motorist

Getting into a car and driving is an essential part of many people's days in Pennsylvania. People need to drive to work, to school, to go to the store or run other errands, visit friends and family and for many other reasons. While driving is very convenient and an easy mode of transportation, driving can also be very dangerous if people are not driving safely or not paying attention to the roads. When people do this, car accidents can occur and people can suffer significant injuries as a result.

That is why all drivers are legally required to have insurance on any vehicle that they own and drive. This insurance is there to pay for any damages or injuries they cause in an accident. However, there are many drivers do not have insurance or are considered underinsured because the limits they have do not cover the extent of the damage they caused in an accident. This can leave the innocent victims of these accidents in a very difficult position.

The victims could be left trying to pay for the medical bills and other damages on their own. Most likely a driver who has insurance does not have enough money to pay for the damages on their own. However, the victims could still receive compensation from their own insurance company if they have uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. Essentially the process for receiving the compensation is the same, but the person will receive the compensation from their own insurance company as opposed to the other driver's insurance.

There are many drivers in Pennsylvania who do not have insurance on their vehicles. This can leave victims of accidents in very difficult physical and financial positions. However, they still may be able to receive compensation from their own insurance company. However, one's own insurance company still may try to minimize damages to save money. So, it is still important for people to understand what they are truly entitled to and consulting with experienced attorneys may be useful.
