Uninsured Motorist Claims Attorney in Clinton
What if the Other Driver Is Not Covered for Your Injuries?
In theory, the driver who caused your car accident is financially responsible for your injuries and losses. In reality, that driver may not have enough insurance coverage ... or any coverage. Tennessee has one of the highest rates of uninsured drivers in the country.
If the other driver's insurance doesn't cover your bodily injuries and property damage, your recourse is to bring a claim under your own car insurance policy. However, insurance companies are notorious for resisting or lowballing these claims. The experienced Clinton car wreck lawyers of The Cantrell Law Firm can fight for your rights to make sure you are covered for a car accident that was not your fault.

Uninsured Motorist & Underinsured Motorist Claims (UM/UIM)
Every Tennessee driver is required by law to carry bodily injury liability insurance. However, the insurance industry estimates that 20 percent of Tennessee motorists are operating without this mandatory insurance. On top of that, a great number of drivers are insured only for the minimum coverage.
Under your own auto policy, you pay extra to protect against this problem. This is called uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist, or UM/UIM, insurance:
- Uninsured motorist (UM) pays for your losses if the negligent driver has zero insurance.
- Underinsured motorist (UIM) pays the difference if your losses exceed the other driver's coverage.
- Uninsured motorist (UM) also covers you if you were the victim of a hit-and-run accident.
