Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage in Georgia
Georgia requires drivers to carry a liability car insurance policy that will cover the injuries and damages suffered by victims of a collision you cause up to the policy limits. However, this does not mean that everyone has the required coverage. There are few things more frustrating than to learn the careless or reckless driver who hit you did not have the required coverage.
Luckily, you may have coverage that will step in and help. According to the Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner, the Georgia General Assembly passed changes to the state’s automobile insurance statutes in 2008 that require drivers to opt-out of uninsured motorist coverage. This is known as “Uninsured Motorist Coverage-Added on to At-Fault Liability Limits.”
This law means that you must reject uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage in writing, or it may come with your liability policy. Unless you took action to reject this additional coverage, you may have it to call on after your accident.
This policy may allow you to file a claim to recover compensation for your injuries and property damages caused by the uninsured motorist who hit you up to your policy limits. This law is codified under O.C.G.A. § 33-7-11.
A member of the Bader Scott Injury Lawyers team can determine your coverages and see if you can file this type of claim when we work together on your case.

Let Our Team Determine a Strategy for Your Case
While a Sandy Springs uninsured motorist accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can help you navigate an uninsured motorist insurance claim and seek compensation, you may have other options.
In some cases, it may be advisable to file a civil lawsuit against the driver who caused your accident. However, if the at-fault and uninsured driver does not have any assets, we may not recommend this option. If a third party was involved in the accident, such a negligent municipality or car mechanic, we may be able to pursue them for compensation as well.
Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can also take steps to build a strong case that demonstrated the uninsured driver’s negligence caused your accident, and that they should, therefore, be legally responsible. As a part of this process, we can determine the value of your case for the purposes of understanding what fair compensation may include.
