If you’ve been in an accident with an uninsured motorist

Thursday May 22, 2014

While Connecticut law requires all motorists to carry liability car insurance, there are unfortunately many drivers who do not follow the law. Of course, just your luck, you happen to be involved in an accident with one of them.

Getting to an accident with an uninsured driver can be scary and confusing, especially if you were injured or your car was seriously damaged. The good news is that our firm is well-versed at handling all kinds of motor vehicle accident cases, including ones involving uninsured motorists. 

Oftentimes what happens after an accident involving an uninsured or underinsured motorist is that drivers will use their own uninsured motorist coverage to be compensated for the financial losses that were caused by the accident such as medical bills, property damage or lost wages.

While people assume that working with their own insurance companies will be easy and straightforward, this usually isn’t the case. People quickly discover that insurance companies have their own best interests in mind and rarely offer a fair settlement, even to their own customers.

This is why it’s important to find an experienced car accident lawyer to fight for your rights and advocate on your behalf. An experienced attorney will study the details of your case to determine what a fair settlement should be.

All too often, people accept the first offer they receive from their insurance companies without knowing what their claim might be worth. Don’t let your bad luck continue by being one of these people.
