In an automobile accident, you are suing for damages. These damages come in the form of economic damages. If you can prove the negligence of the at-fault driver caused your injury, economic damages can cover current and future medical costs along with loss of wages.
When suing for economic damages, you are limited to these Bodily Injury Insurance limits. If your injuries are in excess of these limits or if the at-fault owner or driver does not have Bodily Injury Insurance, your own policy may have what is called an “Underinsured Motorist or Uninsured Motorist Policy.” Underinsured Motorist or Uninsured Motorist Policies are insurance policies that provide you economic damages for the injuries you suffer as a result of an underinsured or uninsured at-fault driver.
If you were injured in an automobile accident, you can be entitled to economic damages. These injuries can have a lasting impact both physically and financially; therefore, you shouldn’t hesitate to take legal action if the at-fault driver was negligent.
