Car accidents are stressful, and this is especially true after learning that the motorist who hit you is uninsured. Even though all registered vehicles in Connecticut are required to carry at least minimum insurance coverage, there are still many motorists who drive vehicles without any coverage at all.
The good news is that Connecticut law also requires vehicles registered in the state to have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage that kicks in to help with the driver’s own medical bills and expenses after being involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver.
But before you get too excited thinking that the claims process will be easy because you are dealing with your own insurance provider, that is usually not the case. Insurance companies have their own best interests in mind which means they want to settle your claim for as little as possible.
In order to get a fair settlement, it’s wise to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area who can fight on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and other related expenses.
Our firm has been assisting Connecticut victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents for many years and we understand how to maximize compensation for our clients who were hit by uninsured or underinsured drivers. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that our clients do not pay us until they receive a settlement or an award from a jury.
