NEW HAVEN HIT-AND-RUN ATTORNEY
UNINSURED DRIVER OR HIT-AND-RUN ACCIDENT COMPENSATION
In most auto accidents, the insurance company of the at-fault party would typically pay for any losses that victims suffer. However, negligent drivers often do not have auto insurance, or they do not have sufficient insurance to cover the accident injuries and damages they cause victims to suffer.
As a result, your own auto insurance company may be your only source of coverage. Your policy’s uninsured motorist and under-insured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage is specifically intended to address these types of situations, but your insurer will be reluctant to allow you to collect in full. Your insurer will attempt to offer minimal coverage, and it may even deny you coverage altogether, depending on your unique situation.
Our firm as handled insurance defense claims – we know their tricks.
You do not need to shoulder this burden alone. If you have been injured in a New Haven hit-and-run accident or by an uninsured or under-insured driver, it is critical that you consult an experienced personal injury attorney in Connecticut immediately.
These are complex cases that will be met with stiff resistance from your insurance company. The LoRicco Law Firm has secured favorable outcomes representing clients throughout Shoreline communities.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING UM/UIM CLAIMS
In a UM/UIM accident, you should file a claim directly with your insurance company to address any damages not covered by the other driver’s insurance policy. Do not assume your rates will increase or your policy will be canceled if you file a claim. Consumers are specifically protected under the law against this type of retaliatory action by insurers.
When you choose our firm, we will be there beside you through every step of the legal process. We will work hard to obtain compensation to accommodate your past, present and future needs, and we are committed to protecting your rights at all times.
REPRESENTATION FOR VICTIMS OF HIT-AND-RUN ACCIDENTS
Your UM/UIM coverage can also be invoked if you are a victim of a hit-and-run accident. If the driver fled the scene and the driver/owner of the car is not known, your insurance treats your claim like an uninsured driver claim. We conduct a thorough investigation into every case, pursuing every available option in an effort to identify the responsible parties. If we are unsuccessful in tracking down the at-fault party, we will help you through the process of filing and collecting on a UM/UIM claim to the fullest extent possible.
