Uninsured Motorist Claims in Chicago

An uninsured motorist claim can be made under two circumstances. The circumstances are as follows:

  1. Injured in an accident caused by a driver with no insurance
  2. Injured in an accident caused by a hit and run driver or by a driver who was never  identified

The insurance Research Council about 13.8 percent of all motorists in the United States are uninsured. In Illinois, about 3 in every 20 motorists, or 15 percent, do not have any or enough insurance. When these drivers were surveyed, the explanation given for not having insurance was the costs were too expensive.

A way to protect yourself from incurring costs associated with an accident with an insured motorist is to have insured motorist insurance. This type of coverage allows for a claim to be made so expenses such as medical bills and lost wages can be compensated.  Roadblocks may arise such as being a low settlement or being denied. In order to obtain the best results, it is important to consult an attorney to help with these roadblocks and find the best approach to handling the case.
