If you have been seriously injured in an accident due to no fault of your own, you may have grounds to file an insurance claim or lawsuit to recover damages for the injuries you sustained. It is not uncommon, in cases where an accident is caused by an underinsured driver, to have the accident victim's own insurance plan help cover the additional costs relating to medical bills, car repairs, and loss of income that the underinsured driver's insurance failed to cover. Should the liable driver have no auto insurance, your uninsured motorist insurance should be able to provide you with the compensation necessary to cover your accident-related expenses.
If you were not at fault for the accident, there is no need to worry about your rates going up after filing an uninsured motorist claim. Massachusetts law states that only at-fault drivers can be charged a surcharge or fee. Uninsured motorist coverage can also help protect you in the event you are involved in a hit-and-run accident. In a situation like this, a knowledgeable personal injury attorney will be able to help you file your claim and work directly with the insurance company on your behalf to see that you get the maximum compensation for your injuries.
