Were You Hurt By Someone Who Had No Insurance Or Not Enough Insurance?

Uninsured drivers are everywhere. A recent study from the Insurance Research Council reveals that approximately one in six drivers throughout the United States may be driving without any insurance. Younger drivers are more likely to go without coverage.

Whether a negligent driver lacks insurance coverage or you were injured by a hit-and-run driver, Hartford uninsured driver lawyer Tony Sheffy can help you get compensated. He has more than 25 years of experience handling all types of car accident claims, including many where a driver was uninsured or did not have enough coverage. In such a situation, you are not out of luck. Mr. Sheffy can help you file a claim with your own insurance company under your uninsured motorist coverage (UM coverage).

What If The At-Fault Driver Doesn't Have Enough Insurance To Cover Your Damages?

Connecticut law mandates that drivers carry automobile insurance. But, the minimum standards in Connecticut require $20,000 for bodily injury coverage per person and $40,000 per incident. What if you are hurt by someone who has the minimum coverage, but your damages are far greater than that amount?

In such cases, you can look to your own coverage. For example, if your bills came to $100,000 but the at-fault driver only had $20,000 of coverage, your own policy may cover the remaining $80,000.

Many people are surprised that their own insurance companies so often refuse to pay these claims. That is why hiring a Hartford lawyer is so important. We know how to analyze coverage and get you the maximum compensation to which you are entitled. The lawyers at Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, will not let you be bullied and treated unfairly by your own insurer.
