A car accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist is a driver's nightmare.
- How do you pay your medical bills?
- How do you get your car fixed?
- How do you support your family if you cannot work?
- And even if the driver carried insurance, it may not be sufficient to cover all your needs after the accident.
Many drivers are unaware that their own insurance policy covers this situation. Illinois requires insurance companies to offer uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. This means that if you are in an accident with another driver who has no insurance or whose policy is inadequate, you can file a claim against your own insurance company.
