Every driver in the state of Georgia is required to have automobile insurance when operating a motor vehicle on the roadways of this state. Unfortunately, Georgia only requires that a driver carry a minimum of $25,000.00 of bodily injury protection as a part of his insurance policy. Often times, injured victims of an automobile collision are left only partially covered for their horrific injuries as a result of an at-fault driver only having the bare minimum Georgia insurance policy. This situation is precisely why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to handle your personal injury claim. Often times, I am able to find additional insurance available to cover your injuries in this precise situation.
Many people pay additional premiums each month to have attached to their policy what’s called uninsured or underinsured motorist protection. In a situation such as the one explained above, a personal injury attorney experienced in evaluating injury insurance and personal injury claims will seek to pursue the underinsured portion of the injured party’s insurance to cover the injuries that you have sustained. There are certain criteria and statutory notices that have to be filed in instances such as these and it is imperative that you hire a personal injury attorney such as me, experienced in the ins and outs of underinsured or uninsured motorist claims; to represent you through what can be an arduous task. If you’ve been involved in a car accident and the other party has minimum insurance or even no insurance, instead of panicking, call Roberts Personal Injury Attorneys, personal injury attorneys that will go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that you get every dime available to cover your catastrophic injuries.
