Drivers must carry insurance to retain driving privileges
The State of Idaho requires that all registered drivers carry a certain minimum amount of car insurance coverage, known as “25/50/15.” The mandatory minimum coverage is:
- $25,000 for the physical injuries or death of one victim
- $50,000 for the physical injuries or death of two or more victims, and
- $15,000 for any property damage.
Many drivers also choose to carry Uninsured Motorist coverage, which will cover your damages when you’re injured by a driver without car insurance. Pedersen & Whitehead’s lawyers can gather the documentation you’ll need to collect under your Uninsured Motorist policy, such as medical bills and repair estimates, and file a claim on your behalf, taking care of all negotiations with your insurer and preparing to go to court to fight for your compensation, if necessary.
Helping You Recover Full Compensation for Your Injuries and Losses
Even if you don’t have uninsured motorist coverage through your auto insurance policy, there may be ways to get compensated for your damages after a crash. A Pedersen & Whitehead uninsured motorist attorney can file a legal claim on your behalf in state court against the at-fault driver. Once a court has decided in your favor and against the at-fault driver, state agencies can get involved to help you get the money you’re owed. Your lawyer will provide a copy of the judgment and accident report to the Idaho Transportation Department. The Transportation Department can then suspend the license of the at-fault driver if that driver does not either pay the judgment or enter into an installment agreement with you within 30 days of receiving notice from the Transportation Department.
