Uninsured Motorist

Every driver on the road is obligated to follow certain posted and unwritten rules intended to ensure the safe operation of vehicles as well as certain common courtesies. Not everyone follows these rules and this can lead to annoyed horn honking or sometimes much worse. Motor vehicle accidents and injuries may result, and this can be particularly vexing if the other driver does not carry Arizona's legally required liability coverage for any damages.

Arizona is an at-fault state, which means that negligent drivers are financially responsible for injuries and damages. Any kind of motor vehicle accident can be traumatic, but lack of insurance adds a level of complexity and frustration. It is wise to contact a personal injury lawyer here in Mesa who handles these types of matters to get the compensation you need for medical bills and lost income due to injuries, as well as pain and suffering. The Law Firm of M. Paul Fischer, P.C., can be a tremendous asset in dealing with parties and insurance companies to keep your expenses to a minimum.

What Are Your Options?

There are two options when someone is injured in a car accident and the responsible driver has no insurance:

  • File a claim for uninsured motorist benefits, which some policies have, with your own insurance carrier. Arizona law prevents carriers from raising your premiums if you make such a claim.
  • The injured driver can sue the uninsured driver responsible for damages.
