Like almost every other state, New York requires all drivers to carry minimum amounts of liability insurance to cover the cost of serious car accidents that result in injury and/or property damage. While policyholders might be able to purchase additional coverage, failure to carry the mandated minimum amount of insurance may result in suspension of your driver’s license and your car’s registration.
New York’s minimum car insurance requirements include:
- A per accident limit of $10,000 for property damage.
- A per accident limit of $25,000 for bodily injury and $50,000 for death of any one person.
- A per accident limit of $50,000 for bodily injury and $100,000 for death of any two persons.
Additionally, New York drivers are also required to carry a minimum of $50,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage along with uninsured motorist (UM)/underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage that meets the same minimum requirements as their liability coverage.
Uninsured motorist coverage is not only a good option for those involved in crashes with uninsured drivers, it can also be used to cover expenses related to a hit-and-run accident where the at fault driver flees the scene of the crash without stopping to exchange information or report the collision to police.
Essentially, this all means that if you get hit by a driver without insurance – you have some options. While you may be able to pursue compensation by making a claim through your uninsured motorist coverage, what are you supposed to do if your damages exceed policy limits? Or what if the insurance company gives you trouble and tries to offer you minimal compensation?
Let a Bronx car accident lawyer stand by your side and help you – every step of the way. Our personal injury attorneys can listen to the details of your case, discuss your options, answer your questions, and help you figure out the best plan of attack to get you the compensation you’re entitled to. Move quickly to protect your rights and keep your legal options open.
A Bronx car accident lawyer can help you avoid paying out of pocket
Whether you were involved in a car accident with an uninsured driver, you’re the victim of a hit-and-run, or your damages exceed policy limits, a crash can have a huge impact on your health and finances. The insurance company might give you a hard time and question the severity of your injuries or argue that you had a pre-existing condition. Worse yet, they may deny your claim altogether and offer you nothing at all.
Serious cases deserve serious attention. Our Bronx car accident lawyers have the knowledge and experience to aggressively advocate for your best interests so that your needs are met not just now – but also moving forward. Whether it’s through a cash settlement or a jury verdict, our law firm will go the extra mile to get you the highest amount of compensation possible.
Best of all, we work on a contingency fee basis. In short, that means there are no upfront costs and you pay nothing unless we win. Learn what an experienced Bronx car accident attorney can do for your uninsured motorist claim. Contact us today for a free consultation.
