My Car Was Damaged by a Driver Without Insurance
If your car was damaged in a wreck with someone in North Carolina who does not have insurance, you are likely still able to pursue a claim to have your car repaired and you may be entitled to more money than just the repair costs.
North Carolina law protects victims of accidents involving driver’s without insurance. The law requires that all automobile insurance policies provide a type of coverage called “Uninsured Motorists Coverage.” This coverage is typically at an amount equal to your liability insurance coverage.
For damage to your car, most Uninsured Motorists coverage provides for the costs or a reasonable repair minus a $100 deductible. Despite the language of most insurance policies, we have seen that most insurance carriers fail to pay the full amount of coverage available under the policy. For instance, most insurance carriers will not pay for the loss of value for the vehicle as a result of the wreck. We believe that this type of damage should be paid and we are actively seeking clients to assist in this important recovery.
