Uninsured Motorist Coverage
In the state of South Carolina drivers are required to have some form of insurance in order to operate their vehicles on our roadways. Of course, there are a number of motorists who continue to operate their vehicles on our roadways without insurance each and every day. These same individuals also have the same likelihood of being involved in an accident as any other driver on our roadways, the only difference is, if we are involved in an accident with them, they may not be able to pay for the damages that have been done.
At Harbin & Burnett, our South Carolina auto accident lawyers believe that if you have been injured or suffered damages by a driver without insurance, that individual must be held accountable for all injuries and damages they have caused and take responsibility for their negligent actions.
