Everyone gets hurt. It’s not an “if” but a “when”. Serious injuries can result in enormous medical bills, lost time/wages from work, permanent pain and suffering, and even death. If someone, something, or someplace is responsible for the injury, no one should just surrender to the financial impact the injury can and will have on their life. Whoever’s responsible or “liable” should take care of it.
Everyone has heard of the McDonald’s “hot coffee” case, but most don’t actually know the real story. The truth is McDonalds intentionally super-heated their coffee to the point that the spill on the woman required skin grafts. The woman originally only asked McDonalds pay her hospital bills; McDonald’s refused. The woman did the smart thing next and hired legal counsel—the result: McDonalds paid hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Auto Accident with an Uninsured Driver
A motor vehicle accident is always a stressful event. To make matters worse, even if the accident is someone else’s fault, that other driver may have little to no insurance to help you recover financially. If you planned right, your own insurance policy will be your saving grace; this portion of your auto policy known as Uninsured/Undersigned Motorist Coverage (“UM” Coverage) essentially details what your maximum recovery will be in such a situation.
Every Florida automobile insurance policy allows their insured to select UM Coverage, along with many options to decrease or increase the amount of the UM Coverage. You can also elect to “stack” your coverage with other vehicles on the same policy, further increasing the maximum payout to you for any injuries or loss.
So, take the time to understand your auto insurance policy and consider electing UM Coverage if you have not already done so. In the unfortunate event you are involved in an auto or motorcycle accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, Mackey Law Group’s experienced personal injury attorneys will be able to navigate your insurance documents and determine the maximum monetary award you are entitled to receive.
