Florida drivers are required to carry liability insurance for property damage they may cause in an accident, but not for injuries to people. Some drivers don’t carry any insurance at all. As such, many people purchase uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage on their own insurance policy.
Uninsured coverage protects them from drivers without insurance or in the case of a hit-and-run accident. Underinsured coverage helps compensate for another driver’s inability to pay damages.

In some accidents, people with legitimate uninsured / underinsured motorist claims count on this coverage to pay for their vehicle repairs, medical care, and more. Unfortunately, insurance companies avoid paying claims whenever possible and uninsured / underinsured claims are no exception. If you are faced with this situation, contact Emmanuel Sheppard & Condon for legal assistance.
Our experienced auto accident lawyers have helped many Florida and Alabama clients build effective cases against their insurance companies. We understand insurance law. In addition, when an accident occurs, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage protects you and your family beyond your vehicle. This means the insurance company will cover your valid injury claims whether you or your family members are riding in your vehicle, in someone else’s vehicle, riding a bicycle, or simply walking down the road.
