In North Carolina, all drivers are required to possess some type of insurance in order to keep themselves and others protected in the case of an accident. Unfortunately, there are dozens of motorists that continue to operate their vehicles on our roadways without any form of insurance. These individuals may not have insurance for a number of reasons, while they may be high risk drivers and pose a threat to all driving on our roadways.
At Lewis & Keller, our auto accident lawyers all have sympathy for all victims of car accidents and believe that if you or a loved one has been injured by the negligent actions of another individual, the victim may be eligible to receive compensation for their losses and damages.

Uninsured Motorist Insurance
When the owner of a motor vehicle purchases insurance in North Carolina, the insurance agency must include uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage in the policy. The only instance where an individual may not have this type of insurance is if they sign a waiver which states they elect not to possess this form of insurance coverage. Of course, most drivers elect not to sign the waiver.
The vehicle which is covered by uninsured motorist insurance will be covered in the case of an accident, along with covering all occupants of that vehicle, if they have been injured in an accident caused by a driver with no insurance.
Damage Claim Types
Having represented dozens of auto accident victims, our attorneys have found that the sooner a victim seeks legal representation, the better.
