Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Accidents: Protecting Your Rights
If you have been involved in a hit-and-run car or motorcycle accident, or if you have collided with an uninsured or underinsured driver, you may have concerns about filing a claim with your own insurance company.

Understanding Uninsured Motorist Insurance Coverage
In Texas, the law requires drivers to have a minimum coverage of $30,000 for injuries per person, up to a total of $60,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage. This is known as 30/60/25 coverage. However, the reality is that serious car accidents can result in much higher medical costs and recovery expenses. Even if the driver who caused the accident has the legally required insurance, it may not be enough to cover all your medical bills and related costs.
The Role of Med Pay in Uninsured Motorist Accidents
Med pay, also referred to as PIP or personal injury protection insurance, is specifically designed to cover your medical expenses, even if you are found to be at fault in the accident. Our team understands how to navigate the settlement of auto accident claims to maximize any med pay benefits you are entitled to. Importantly, we do not charge any fees for obtaining your med pay benefits, ensuring that you receive the full compensation you deserve.
