Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists
When a client is injured in an accident, one of the first things we do is determine how much coverage the at-fault driver possesses. Missouri law only requires individual drivers carry a minimum of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per occurrence in liability insurance. Despite this requirement, some people drive without insurance or let their policy lapse and they may not have any insurance at the time of an accident.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists: when the at-fault person does not have insurance, they are referred to as an “uninsured” driver. If your damages exceed the insurance coverage of an at-fault party, that person is referred to as an “underinsured” driver.
