The stress that follows a car, truck or motorcycle accident is only compounded when you discover the responsible party is poorly insured or carries no policy at all. You rightfully wonder how you will secure damages from the driver at fault. You feel your options are limited.

North Carolina residents are required to have liability insurance. However, many disregard this legal responsibility. When an uninsured driver operates a motor vehicle negligently and collides with you, your ability to collect damages becomes more difficult.
At Iorio Law, we will help you file an uninsured motorist claim. While you may not see your own provider as an opponent in a personal injury claim, they are a legitimate source of compensation and your rates cannot be affected. We aggressively pursue all of the sources of compensation you are entitled to under the law.
Underinsured drivers create just as many complications as their uninsured counterparts. North Carolina law requires that you have only $30,000 of liability insurance coverage. In a lot of cases that is not enough to compensate you for your bodily injuries, medical bills and lost wages incurred in a serious accident. Your policy, the policy of the car your were riding in, or other family household policies may contain underinsured motorist coverage. We can even add policies together in some cases to create enough coverage to fully compensate you.
Serious mistakes are often made in these claims. Any time you negotiate with the insurance company of the underinsured driver you risk losing access to all forms of additional coverage. At Iorio Law we handle the entire process and deal with each of the insurance companies, one step at a time. Nothing is lost.
