Rockport Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist
The law in Texas requires everyone who owns a motor vehicle to carry liability insurance known as an uninsured/underinsured motorist policy. As the name implies, Rockport uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance is a two-part insurance policy that provides coverage related to two distinct aspects of a collision. The uninsured coverage section is intended to protect you if you are hit by another driver who is not insured. In this instance, the other driver is referred to as the “at-fault” driver. The underinsured part of the policy applies when the at-fault driver has some insurance, but the policy they purchased is the least amount required by law. All too frequently neither of these features of an insurance policy provides sufficient money to cover all the damages and medical expenses the not-at-fault driver (you) is faced with. You can be confident when you turn to our attorneys at Carabin & Shaw in Rockport, Texas, we know exactly how to interpret and apply the various laws in your best interest.
If you’ve been in an automobile accident, your hope is that the person who hit you chose to carry Rockport uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance, and of course, if they did, this would lead you to believe the damages to your vehicle, as well as the physical injuries you or your passenger(s) may have suffered will be covered, right? Nope! It’s a sad fact, but our lawyers will tell you that this is not necessarily true; in fact, it is seldom the case.
