Every year, hundreds of Missouri citizens are injured in car accidents involving uninsured drivers. Thousands more are injured in accidents involving drivers who carry only the minimum amount of liability coverage for bodily injury, which in Missouri and Kansas, is $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident.

Who Will Pay for My Damages?

Missouri requires drivers to carry uninsured (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage equal to at least the minimum amount of liability coverage required by state law.

If you carry more than the minimum amount of liability coverage, you have the option of buying UM or UIM coverage up to the amount of liability insurance you carry. Uninsured coverage is usually required, but underinsured coverage is not always required.

UM and UIM coverage protects yourself and your passengers; not only from uninsured drivers, but also from hit-and-run drivers, phantom vehicles, and drivers who do not have enough insurance to pay for your damages.

Our Experience Protects Your Interests

Filing UM and UIM insurance claims can be very complex, especially if you were injured by an underinsured driver. If you make a mistake, your insurance company could deny your claim. For this reason, it’s important to seek the help of an experienced attorney who can protect your interests.
