Uninsured Auto Accident Attorneys and Lawyers in New York City
Because of the sheer number of drivers on the road, it is guaranteed that there are drivers who aren’t carrying insurance or who are carrying insufficient insurance.
A New York driver is required to carry:
- Bodily injury and property damage liability insurance with minimum coverage of:
- $25,000 bodily injury coverage per person
- $50,000 bodily injury coverage per accident
- $10,000 property damage coverage per accident
2. Personal injury protection (PIP), sometimes called no-fault coverage, of at least $50,000 and
3. Uninsured motorist bodily injury (with the same minimums as bodily injury liability)
Uninsured motorist coverage is insurance that pays for bodily injury resulting from an accident with a driver who is responsible for injury but who has no liability coverage. In New York, under-insured and uninsured motorist coverage is actually common but many people do not know they have it on their policy.
