Burlington Uninsured Motorist Accident Attorneys

If you were injured in an accident caused partially or completely by another driver, you may assume you should be able to collect compensation from that driver or from his or her insurance. Unfortunately, drivers who cause accidents are often found to be uninsured or underinsured. They may be undocumented immigrants, people driving with suspended licenses, car thieves or drivers who have bought only the minimum required insurance — not enough to cover a major injury.

Assuming that your own auto accident insurance policy is active, you may need to turn to your own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UI/UIM) coverage. Even though it is your insurance company, the company is now your opponent in your car accident case. Do not assume that your insurance company will willingly cover your expenses and pain and suffering at maximum amounts.

There are normally very detailed requirements you must meet before collecting UI/UIM benefits from your insurance company. You will need to demonstrate that you have made every effort to collect from a negligent driver before your UI/UIM insurance can be tapped into. Many insurers put up roadblocks and delay the process as long as they can before paying on policyholders’ UI/UIM policy provisions. An experienced car accident lawyer can advocate skillfully on behalf of an injured party in dealings with the insurance company.
