"I was hit by an uninsured motorist. How do I pursue a claim?"
Unfortunately, there are still many motorists who drive around uninsured or underinsured. Although Georgia law requires that drivers be insured in order to drive, about 14% of all drivers are uninsured, according to recent statistics. If your vehicle has been damaged and you have been injured after an Atlanta car accident with a negligent and uninsured driver, you have rights.
You may have to obtain compensation from your own insurance company, or you may be able to file a claim for damages against the other driver. Options are available to you, and it is a good idea to talk with a skilled Atlanta accident attorney to find out your rights to recovery and what options may be available for your specific case.
