We will begin work quickly on your behalf, so you don’t end up having to pay a lot of unexpected car repair and medical bills.
Uninsured And Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) Claims
In Massachusetts, drivers are required by law to carry automobile insurance. If your car is hit by an uninsured motorist, it is very difficult to recover money damages on your own.
You may have had a car accident with an underinsured motorist, which is another common circumstance. The underinsured motorist may carry a minimum amount of liability insurance, but not enough to cover the expenses of your accident, including:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost time at work
- Repair or replacement of your car
- Wrongful death of a family member
An additional source of compensation may be available from your own insurance policy. As experienced attorneys handling car accidents, we have found that dealing with insurance companies for uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage is not easy to do.
Your insurance company may deny the claim, stating you’re at fault. Insurance companies often say that injuries are not as serious as claimed. They work aggressively work to reduce any amount of compensation they will have to pay on a claim.
