Cincinnati Uninsured Motorist Lawyer
Imagine this scenario: You are involved in a serious car accident that is the fault of the other driver. Upon talking to the driver, you find out that he or she does not have car insurance, and therefore will be unable to cover the costs of the accident (including damage to personal property and any medical bills you may incur).
A first response may be to panic and assume that you will have to cover the costs of an accident that was not your fault completely out of your own pocket. However, in many cases, you may be covered by a section of your own insurance policy.

How Uninsured Motorist Claims Work
Many insurance policies have an uninsured / underinsured motorist provision included in them so that policy holders are protected in the event of an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist.
In the event of an accident with an uninsured motorist, a person with this coverage must take the other driver to court in order to establish fault for the accident. Once the other driver has been found responsible for the accident, he/she is required to pay whatever he/she can afford (either from insurance or out of pocket) for the accident. After this amount has been paid, the victim’s uninsured motorist coverage will pay for the remainder of the damage.
