Alaska State Law requires that every driver on the road carry motor vehicle insurance. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to carry any insurance at all, despite the law. And some drivers who do carry insurance do not carry enough coverage to adequately compensate you if you are seriously hurt in an automobile accident. It is for these reasons that insurance companies are required by law to offer uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
This coverage protects you in the event that you are hurt by someone driving a vehicle who does not have insurance or does not have adequate insurance to pay for your injuries. At Pentlarge Law Group, LLC we recommend to all of our clients that they carry underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage with their insurance policy. This way, if they are injured by someone who has no insurance, they can still collect compensation for their injuries. Similarly, if they are injured by someone who has inadequate insurance, they can still expect to collect fair compensation for their injuries from their underinsured motorist coverage.
The attorneys at Pentlarge Law Group, LLC are experienced with the handling of uninsured and underinsured motorist cases. In these types of cases, your insurance company does require that you take some extra steps to obtain your uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. If you are in doubt about how to handle it, seek the advice of an attorney. At Pentlarge Law Group, LLC we offer free consultations.
When you are in an automobile accident it is always important to notify your insurance company immediately. This is especially true if the other driver has no insurance, or has less than adequate insurance. It is important to understand your rights and obligations when it comes to this type of coverage.
