Uninsured Motorist Claims In Columbus, Ohio

When you consider that one in eight drivers is uninsured, it's important to protect yourself and your family by carrying uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage.

At Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty, we have a 45-year history of helping injured people obtain compensation from all sources of insurance available to them, including UM/UIM coverage.

Helping You Obtain The Full Coverage You Deserve

While UM/UIM coverage is optional in Ohio, we recommend that all drivers carry this important coverage. UM/UIM provides coverage for both personal injury and property damage resulting from an accident.

UM/UIM coverage protects you against both uninsured drivers and drivers who do not carry enough insurance to cover your losses. As of December 22, 2013, drivers in Ohio are required to carry only a minimum of $25,000 personal injury coverage per person and $50,000 for all persons injured in any one accident. If you have suffered a serious injury, $25,000 will not go far in paying your medical bills.

When you pay for UM/UIM coverage, you expect the coverage to be there when you need it. However, when filing a claim against your own insurance company, your interests are opposite to those of your insurance company. As a result, it's important to have a lawyer who will protect your interests and ensure you receive the full compensation you deserve.

Your insurance company cannot raise your rates for filing an underinsured or uninsured motorist claim as long as the accident was not your fault.
