Did you get injured in a car accident? Check out these 3 car accident tips for guidance, then call our Augusta lawyers to get started today.
1) Injured by an Uninsured Driver
I met with a nice lady last week who was involved in a T-bone accident on Greene Street, here in Augusta. This client told me that the opposing driver did not have insurance. The opposing driver was a teenage kid that had let his insurance lapse. If you’re reading this, you may have the same question – what do you do when the opposing driver does not have insurance?
Hopefully, you have uninsured motorist coverage that would cover you in the event the opposing driver does not have automobile insurance. If you have uninsured motorist coverage, your insurance company steps into the place of the opposing driver and compensates you for your damages. Many clients wonder whether your insurance premiums will go up if you make a claim for uninsured motorist coverage, and the answer in Georgia is, no, your insurance premium should not go up.
If you have an uninsured motorist question or the driver that caused your wreck does not have insurance, please give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
2) Automobile Insurance Tips
I have an automobile insurance tip for my clients. The minimum insurance limit in the state of Georgia is $25,000. Many of the drivers on our roads in Augusta are driving around with only $25,000 worth of insurance. Some drivers are driving around with no insurance. One way to protect yourself and your family from this is to purchase uninsured motorist coverage. This coverage is not very expensive, and it’s easy to purchase. I advise all my clients to get increased uninsured motorist coverage to protect them and their families against uninsured or underinsured motorists.
3) Uninsured Motorist Coverage
I’d like to give you this insurance buying tip. About five times a year we have clients that are badly injured by motorists in the state of Georgia that do not have insurance. About 25 times a year we have clients that are badly injured where the other motorist who caused the wreck does not have enough insurance. I’ll share this tip with you that I share with my clients: talk to your agent about getting uninsured motorist coverage and getting excess uninsured motorist coverage. This coverage does not cost very much, and it will protect you and your family. If you have any automobile insurance questions, give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
