Who is Really Protected by California Uninsured Motorist Coverage?

Woodland Hills personal injury attorney Barry P. Goldberg really understands why California drivers have such a hard time understanding Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist coverage. That is why he is becoming known as the Los Angeles Uninsured Motorist Attorney. It is not hard to see that California Insurance Code §11580.2 (“the Uninsured Motorist Law”) is poorly written and not logically organized. More importantly, the statute is in many ways ambiguous and confusing. One of the biggest areas of confusion is that the public does not intuitively know who is really protected by Uninsured Motorist coverage. Therefore, many significant claims are never brought. Insurers favor this confusion and have consistently lobbied to keep the Uninsured Motorist Law intact and have lobbied against logical changes to the Uninsured Motorist Law.

In this Article, Mr. Goldberg explains "who" is actually covered by California's Uninsured Motorist Law. Consumers may find that accidents and injuries that occur to them or their family, such as auto v. pedestrian and "hit and runs", are "actually covered" despite popular misconception of the law and its application.
