There may be several instances in which inadequate car accident insurance coverage could affect you after traffic collision:
- If you have been in a hit-and-run accident. In this situation, you do not have the insurance information for the other driver and therefore cannot file a claim with their insurance company. Unfortunately, underinsured and uninsured motorist are commonly the culprit in hit-and-run accidents, as they may leave the scene of an accident because they do not want to admit that they have broken the law or do not have car insurance.
- If you have been in an accident with an uninsured driver. Unfortunately, some drivers choose not to drive with insurance or allow their insurance to expire. In some cases, they may simply not want to pay for the cost of insurance premiums while in other cases they may have a hard time qualifying for insurance due to other reasons. Of course, insurance in Florida is the law so there's no excuse for driving without insurance.
- If you have been in accident with an underinsured driver. Even with drivers who do have insurance, many drivers have low insurance coverage because they want to pay less for their insurance. In the event of a serious collision that leads to head injuries, spinal cord injuries, or other serious injuries, the cost of your medical care, lost wages, and other damages may far exceed the amount that their insurance can offer.
- If after filing an insurance claim you find that the insurance process is hampered in some way. In some cases, insurance carriers are not willing to offer benefits in a car accident. They may allege that a specific loss is not covered by a policy, they may try to deny the claim, or they may take other steps to avoid patent claim.
