Protecting Yourself - What You Should Know About Uninsured and Underinsured Coverages

Cory P. Whalen - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyDecember 13, 2017

Uninsured motorist laws are different from state to state.  Some states even allow the consumer to opt out of the coverage.  Don’t do it.  Saving a little money in the short run might end up costing you thousands of dollars in the long run.  The small savings in premium cost doesn’t offset the protection offered by the coverage.  Declining the coverage can leave drivers exposed to thousands of dollars in expenses in the event of an accident.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

St. Paul Local 12

Thanks for everything, your experience paid off BIG!!!

Morgan Petoletti

My husband had an amazing experience with this firm. They listened and took the time to understand our case.

John Zemlicka

My wife and I were involved in a car accident on October 4, 2018 when a driver approaching us decided to make a U turn and hit us. My wife spent nine days in the ICU with 10 broken or fractured ribs and multiple other injuries, and I had a broked rib and lacerations from my seat belt. The car was totaled.

We contacted SiebenCarey on the advice of a lawyer friend who we asked, “Who is the best injury lawyer in the Twin Cities”? We were interviewed within hours and the wheels were put in motion for medical benefits and recovery of our property and damages. We were advised that a complete settlement could take over a year, but our bills were paid and a settlement reached in less than 8 months. 
 Jim Carey called us several times during this period of time to update us on the progress of our claims. We are very happy and satisfied with the way we were treated and the results of our claim.  
Jenny and John Zemlicka
