Aaron Sachs - Missouri Uninsured Motorist Accident
Uninsured Motorist Accidents
An uninsured motorist accident occurs when the party at fault in a Missouri
car accident does not have automobile insurance.
It is against the law in Missouri to drive a vehicle without insurance
; however, some drivers break this law and are on the road without any
insurance. These drivers are referred to as "uninsured motorists."
If you or a member of your family were involved in an accident with an
uninsured motorist, Aaron Sachs and Associates may be able to help you.
Our law firm provides assistance for people injured or killed in Missouri
uninsured motorist accidents.
Being involved in an accident is traumatic enough, both physically and
emotionally, but being in an uninsured motorist accident sometimes makes
the situation more complicated. Not only are you dealing with injuries
-and often severe injuries or death - but now there is the added worry
of who will pay for the hospital bills, medical expenses, the cost of
repairing or replacing your vehicle, missed work, lost wages, ongoing
care, or the death of a loved one.
Who will pay if the person who hit you doesn't have insurance?
These questions are sometimes asked by uninsured motorist accident victims
and/or their families and can add to the trauma of the accident.

Missouri Uninsured Motorist Accidents
When interviewing attorneys to represent you in an uninsured motorist
accident claim, it is important to ask if they are familiar with Missouri
uninsured motorist accident cases because uninsured motorist claims can
be more complicated than regular accident cases.
In the event of an uninsured motorist accident, you may be able to make
a claim under your own accident insurance policy if you have uninsured
motorists' coverage. Since
uninsured motorist coverage is required by Missouri law, chances are you DO have this coverage in the legally required amount
of $25,000 for bodily injury per person and $50,000 for bodily injury
per accident. Although it might not seem fair for your insurance company
to have to pay when someone else was at fault, remember two things: 1)
You pay for this coverage just in case of an uninsured motorist accident
and 2) Your insurance company can pursue the at-fault party for reimbursement.
If the uninsured motorist driver was in a work vehicle at the time of the
accident, or on a work errand, you may be able to pursue a claim against
the employer or vehicle owner.
If your uninsured motorist coverage does not adequately cover expenses
and losses, you may want to investigate whether it is worth pursuing the
uninsured motorist for additional compensation.
Other factors that may complicate an uninsured motorist claim include the
fact that driving without insurance is against the law and criminal charges
might be filed, especially if the person was also driving without a license
and/or was a drunk driver or a hit and run. Additionally, although some
uninsured motorist insurance contains certain exclusions or limitations,
because uninsured motorist coverage is mandatory in Missouri, sometimes
these exclusions or limitations have been struck down because our State
has a public policy that overrides those provisions. Also, in some circumstances,
the accident victim may be allowed to stack or add other policies of uninsured
motorist coverage on cars that are garaged at the same household.

The Effects of an Uninsured Motorist Accident
An uninsured motorist accident can turn your life upside down in a split
second. What if it happened to you or a family member? Would you know
what to do? Who would you call for legal assistance? Who will pay for
the medical bills and any necessary prescriptions, therapy, rehab, extended
treatments or expensive equipment? Who will pay for the damage to your
vehicle or to replace your vehicle? What about missed work? What if there
were serious injuries and there may be long term disability? What if someone
died? Were there any witnesses to the accident? How could you find them?
Since driving without insurance is against the law, will that complicate
a claim? How much will your own uninsured motorist insurance cover and
what if the expenses are more than that?
