Accidents with Uninsured Motorist
Dedicated Kansas City Car Accident Lawyers
Under Missouri law, all motorists in the state must carry insurance to operate their vehicle. While this is law, not all drivers take responsibility for their actions and obtain the necessary insurance. Driving on the roads each and every day can be more dangerous than you realize because of these irresponsible drivers. The purpose of insurance is to make sure that medical expenses can be covered in the event of a car accident. When a driver without insurance is involved in an accident, you are responsible for paying out of pocket for your medical expenses. This is unacceptable.
You should never be responsible with the negligence and lawbreaking of another driver has resulted in a serious and life-changing personal injury. At DiPasquale Moore, our Kansas City car accident attorneys pride themselves on standing up for those that have been unnecessarily harmed by another person. When an uninsured motorist is involved in an accident, it should never be your responsibility to cover the cost.

Why do I have underinsured motorist coverage?
When you sign up for automobile insurance, you will be given the option of signing up for underinsured motorist coverage. This works by providing you with protection in case the driver you are involved in a collision with is uninsured or underinsured. Theoretically, this concept seems great, but insurance companies are often concerned with protecting their bottom line, giving you less compensation than you truly deserve when you have been involved in an accident.
While you do not need insurance to cover property damage, drivers are required to possess these minimum coverage amounts:
- $25,000 for bodily injury per person
- $50,000 for total body injury for multiple people
These minimums are rarely significant enough to cover the high costs of medical treatment that is suffered in a car accident. While it may seem that you are protected, you rarely carry full protection for the injuries you have obtained. When this minimum amount is not enough, you need to retain an experienced attorney that can help you recover compensation for your medical expenses.
