In the wake of one of the worst economic declines in U.S. history, rates of uninsured drivers on public roads and highways have reached unprecedented levels. According to studies and data compiled by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, one out of every seven drivers in America has no auto insurance.
Additionally, Florida law does not require drivers to carry bodily injury liability insurance coverage. Because our legislature has failed to protect its citizens by requiring mandatory bodily injury coverage, you must protect yourself on Florida roads by purchasing Uninsured Motorist Coverage on your OWN insurance policy.
The Importance of Purchasing UM Coverage
We realize in this economy you may want to save money by decreasing your automobile insurance premiums. It is important that you do not eliminate Uninsured Motorist Coverage as it is sometimes THE ONLY AVENUE OF RECOVERY when you are injured by an uninsured driver.
This coverage is on your own insurance policy and is elective. It provides security to you and your family should you be injured by an uninsured driver. We urge all of our clients and friends of the firm to obtain as much uninsured motorist coverage as they can afford and that such coverage is STACKING.

If you or your loved one has been injured in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver, our firm is prepared to help you navigate the available legal channels to recover the full amount of compensation you require to recover from you injuries and rebuild your life.
