About Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Accidents

Although it is against state law to drive without insurance, many drivers do. Others obtain only the minimum coverage required. These policies typically pay a maximum of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident. These amounts often do not come close to covering resulting medical bills and other damages. 

However, your own auto insurance policy is likely to cover you if the other driver has insufficient coverage. Many drivers do not know that they are able to seek legal action against their own insurance company for compensation. The experienced attorneys at Leahy Law can help you in this process. Most insurance policies come with uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage options. These are intended to provide payment for excess damages caused by other drivers. Leahy Law fights aggressively to make certain you receive the compensation you are owed.

What to do After an Accident 

It is vital to notify your insurance carrier as soon as you discover the other driver has insufficient coverage. Sometimes this is immediately obvious, such as when police at an accident scene inform you the driver is uninsured. Other times, a seemingly cooperative driver may string you along, not returning calls or providing conflicting information. In addition, you will not know the extent of your medical bills and lost wages until some time after your accident.

"Mr. Leahy handled two of my auto claims, one in 2009 and the other in 2011. The first case we had to file a law suit and go to arbitration. I liked how Leahy Law’s attorney fee percentage is the same whether I sue or settle out of court. Overall I was impressed how vigorously I was represented at arbitration. The second accident we settled out of court. It pays to have an experienced trial attorney who can sue for you if need be, and that is Patrick Leahy." Read More.

How We Can Help

Your insurance company will investigate your claim to determine the extent of damages owed. However, insurance adjusters often do not have your best interests in mind. We are very familiar with insurance company procedures and tactics. If you are unfairly denied coverage in an uninsured or underinsured motorist accident, we can illustrate the full extent of your losses and fight to obtain your rightful compensation.
