What happens if you are injured by a driver who has no insurance coverage? Despite laws requiring all drivers to purchase vehicle insurance, this scenario happens all too frequently, and victims are often left wondering how to recover the compensation they need.

The legal team at Frank Jenkins Law Office understands the challenges of handling an uninsured motorist claim. Call us today at 859-389-9344 or contact us. We can help you with your claim.

When you purchase vehicle insurance, Kentucky law states that the insurance company must offer a minimum of $10,000 in coverage for your medical bills or lost wages if you are injured in an accident.  This coverage applies regardless of who was responsible for the accident. The law also requires the insurance company to provide coverage for damages sustained in an accident with an uninsured driver. However, you must select this coverage when you are applying for insurance. If you have signed any form that indicates you willingly reject uninsured motorist coverage, you are no longer eligible for this benefit – and many drivers sign away their right to this coverage without understanding the impact.

If you are injured by an uninsured motorist, you will need to file a claim against your own insurance company – and if you have already rejected uninsured motorist coverage, this becomes difficult.  Experienced legal assistance is essential when dealing with an uninsured motorist claim, because your insurance company does not want to pay for damages caused by someone else.  Insurance investigators work hard to minimize financial loss by denying claims or offering insufficient settlements – and too often, accident victims accept amounts that aren’t enough to pay for necessary medical costs.

Frank Jenkins Law Office has represented many Kentuckians injured by a hit and run driver, and we know how to properly document the accident scene and collect witness statements and evidence. More importantly, we know insurance companies – and we use our experience to strengthen your case and obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries.

The Frank Jenkins Law Office will conduct a thorough assessment of your case, and review all available options to build a strategy with your best interests in mind. If you don’t know whether your situation requires a lawsuit or legal action, we can provide an initial consultation for FREE to determine if you have a case.  We will meet with clients in our office, in the hospital, or at home if necessary.

Your right to justice shouldn’t be compromised because of concerns over payment. We handle most cases on a contingency basis*, which means you pay nothing up front and will only pay an attorney fee when we settle or win your case.

If you’ve been injured in an accident with an uninsured motorist and have legal questions, contact the Frank Jenkins Law Office today at 859-389-9344 or contact us.
