Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists

Helping people injured in accidents recover compensation

When you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver, that driver’s insurance company is ultimately responsible for paying the damages. But what if the driver doesn’t have enough insurance, or no insurance at all? Car accident attorney Jon R. Hawk can help.

In Georgia, all drivers are required to have car insurance with minimum amounts of liability coverage. Insurers must also offer you the option of adding uninsured or underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage. It is not required to have this coverage, but Macon law firm Jon R. Hawk, Sr., LLC recommends that all drivers carry it.
