Uninsured motorists are a true burden on society. You pay your auto insurance to protect others if you should cause an accident - then you are involved in an accident that is not your fault, only to find out that the driver who caused the accident doesn't have any insurance at all.
Fortunately, you can be covered by uninsured motorist protection. Under the uninsured motorist law, you can sue your insurance company for your damages - your insurance company will then go after the uninsured motorist to repay them for what they have to pay you. The only unfortunate part of this scheme is that it pits you against your own insurance company, which is not a comfortable position for most people.
At Halberg & Fogg PLLC, we have represented many motorists making uninsured and underinsured motorist claims against their insurance companies. We do the hard work for you, demanding that your insurance company fully compensate you for all your damages as the liable motorist would if he or she was fully insured. It is not appropriate for your insurance company to blame you for being involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, and we will make sure that does not happen.
We have office in West Palm Beach, but we handle cases throughout Florida. Our cases are all handled on a contingency basis which means that you do not owe us anything unless and until you recover money damages in your case, either by settlement or a jury verdict.
