Protection Against Uninsured And Underinsured Motorists

It's scary out there. Although the laws are clear that every driver needs a minimum of liability insurance, the number of people driving without adequate insurance or without insurance at all is alarming. According to a study by the Insurance Information Institute, Oklahoma was the state with the highest percentage of uninsured motorists, a staggering 26 percent.*

As a law abiding citizen, this statistic is alarming. More than one in every four drivers in the state does not carry any insurance (and this statistic does not include all of those drivers with inadequate insurance). If you get hit by one of these drivers, do you have any recourse? Who will cover the costs of medical bills and lost wages?

Do not panic. We can help you, and we want to help you. At Dawkins & Gowens Law Firm in Oklahoma City, our experienced lawyers have handled many uninsured and underinsured motorist claims. We serve clients in all types of motor vehicle accident claims throughout the state of Oklahoma.

Finding Compensation

Of course, the most pressing matter in an uninsured/underinsured motorist accident claim is finding compensation. When a driver has adequate insurance, the insurance company is liable to cover the costs of damages caused by the driver. But without adequate insurance, only the driver can be held liable.

It would be exceedingly rare in today's economy for any driver to have enough in liquid assets to cover the costs of medical care, lost wages, property damages and emotional distress in the aftermath of an accident, especially a catastrophic auto accident.

Our attorneys have handled cases like this before. We know how to find means of compensation for our clients to make sure they are not left to handle all of the costs and expenses on their own.
