Uninsured/Underinsured Drivers

EXPERIENCED LAWYERS WHO FIGHT FOR VICTIMS OF UNINSURED MOTORIST ACCIDENTS

When you’re on the road, you expect that other motorists have insurance that keeps both them and you protected in the event of an accident. Unfortunately, some motorists don’t follow the law and drive without insurance, and others have insurance but not enough coverage to pay for the full cost of your injury. If you’re in that situation, you absolutely need an experienced Connecticut auto accident attorney to represent you.

At D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC, we’ve been practicing law in Connecticut for decades. We understand the state’s unique laws concerning uninsured and underinsured motorist claims, and we have a long track record of results for victims in situations like yours.

UNDERSTANDING UNINSURED AND UNDERINSURED MOTORIST POLICIES IN CONNECTICUT

An uninsured motorist is someone who drives without valid liability insurance for their automobile (which is against the law in Connecticut). In addition, a motorist who can’t be identified—for example, a hit-and-run driver who is never found—is considered uninsured by default. An underinsured motorist is someone who has liability insurance, but the amount of their available liability coverage is inadequate to fully compensate you for your injuries.

When an uninsured or underinsured driver causes an accident that leads to serious or fatal injuries, the consequences can be financially catastrophic. That’s why the State of Connecticut requires all drivers to carry uninsured and underinsured motorist protection. This is a type of insurance coverage on your own policy that stands in for the responsible party’s coverage if it is unavailable or inadequate.
