Recovery in Uninsured & Underinsured Cases in Missouri  

All drivers in Missouri are required to carry at least $25,000 in bodily injury coverage per person and $50,000 of bodily injury coverage for all people injured in a single accident. Additionally, Missouri requires $10,000 in property damage coverage. These coverage limits may sound high, but with skyrocketing medical costs, the minimum auto insurance coverage does not usually fully cover damages in serious car wrecks.

Missouri law requires uninsured motorist coverage in the same amounts, but you can carry a higher policy for an additional premium. 

If the driver who ran into you was uninsured, our attorneys will pursue compensation from your insurance company. If your medical expenses exceed the amount of the negligent driver’s policies, our attorneys pursue the maximum coverage of the negligent driver and seek the remainder under your policy. We may also file a lawsuit against the driver to collect on a judgment for any amounts not covered by insurance. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the quality medical care you need without being saddled with debt for an accident you did not cause.

What if I Was Involved in a Hit-and-Run Accident?

Hit-and-run collisions are considered uninsured motorist claims. After all, you have no way to pursue damages from a driver who you cannot identify. Many drivers flee precisely because they are uninsured or unlicensed. So, even if police capture the hit-and-run driver, you face challenges to recover damages.  
Our lawyers work closely with police and prosecutors to help you get justice and to maximize your monetary recovery.
