Waldorf Uninsured Motorist Accident Lawyers
You Can Still Seek Compensation with Our Help
Did you get sideswiped, rear-ended, or otherwise hit by an uninsured motorist? You might expect that your chance to recover a fair amount of damages has been floundered. With some legal guidance from Farmer & Klopfer, though, there might still be a way to get the compensation you need and deserve.
Our Waldorf uninsured motorist accident attorneys are here to help you explore all of your legal options after an uninsured motorist crashes into you. Depending on your insurance policy, we might be able to demand full damages from your own insurer. Every case is unique, though, so we need to be able to sit down with you and discuss your situation to know the best approach to take.
Uninsured Motorist Insurance Benefits
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that about 12% of all drivers in certain parts of America are uninsured, despite all states requiring motorists to carry some form of active car insurance. Due to the prevalence of uninsured drivers, it is highly advised that you purchase the best uninsured motorist (UM) insurance policy you can reasonably afford. However, in Maryland, the law requires you to purchase uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) bodily liability insurance coverage that meets minimum legal requirements.
Your UM/UIM insurance policy in Maryland must provide at least:
- $30,000 in damages per person injured
- $60,000 in damages per accident
After being hit by an uninsured motorist, your own insurance company’s policy should pay for your bodily injury damages, up to the coverage cap you purchased. Our law firm can help you file and manage this claim that you bring against your own insurer. Even though you have paid them monthly premiums and they advertised themselves as being as friendly and as helpful as a kind neighbor, you should not be surprised if your own insurance provider tries to deny or undervalue your uninsured motorist claim.
Hit-and-Run Drivers are “Uninsured”
Were you hit by a reckless driver who then left the scene of your accident before you could collect their insurance and identifying information? Your uninsured motorist insurance policy may cover your medical bills in this situation as well. Let us review your policy to see if it applies to unidentified drivers, not just drivers who you identified as uninsured.
To increase the chances of identifying a hit-and-run driver, try to remember:
- Key features of the driver
- License plate state and as many digits as you can
- Make, model, and color of the car
- Direction the driver fled the scene
You should call the police after being in a hit-and-run accident and give them the above information to the extent possible. With some luck, they could catch the driver and stop them from causing any more injuries. Drivers who commit hit-and-runs are often underinsured or uninsured, which is why they fled in the first place.

Thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning
“From the initial consultation, I knew I needed James Farmer and his team on my side. He was thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning, prior to even hiring his firm. Once I officially hired his firm, he and his colleague Mr. Melvin Allen moved to strategically place me in the best position possible. They supported me throughout the process by making sure I understood what was happening and I felt extremely grateful to have them on my side! Long story short, my case was successfully completed with a favorable outcome! An outcome I couldn’t even imagine was possible but Mr. Allen’s expertise, strategy, and courtroom presence made it all possible! My wife and I are forever grateful and will always look to this firm on any future needs and you should, too!”
Keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with
I just recently had James E. Farmer handle my second DUI and I received the best possible outcome I could've wished for. The judge I had could've really laid down the hammer on me but James worked his magic and did an incredible job. He knows what he is talking about and is very humble. He keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with, and he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on. This is my first time hiring James and without a doubt, I would hire him again. He would be the first person I'd call if another legal problem should ever rise-- though I've made a promise to myself to stay away from the law as much as possible. He will be highly recommended to anyone that asks me if I know a great lawyer.”
