People routinely get into car accidents with drivers that only have a small amount of car insurance. This can problematic when the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage is insufficient to compensate the victim fully. In such cases, you may have Underinsured Motorist Coverage through your own insurance carrier, and you may need the help of an uninsured motorist attorney to collect your compensation.
Whether from an auto accident or motorcycle accident, underinsured motorist coverage may allow you to supplement your recovery from the at-fault driver with additional money. Many injured victims are afraid to file an underinsured motorist claim because they fear that bringing a claim against their own insurance company will lead to higher premiums. This fear is unfounded. It was not your fault that you were hit by a driver who did not have the foresight to carry a sufficient amount of coverage. Therefore, Maryland law does not allow your insurance company to penalize you for making this type of claim.
We recommend that victims with underinsured motorist claims contact one of our Rockville personal injury lawyers immediately. This is especially important in this type of claim because you have to make sure that you put your insurance carrier on notice of the need to make the claim in an expeditious manner. Take advantage of our familiarity with the underinsured motorist claim process so that you don’t leave money that you may be entitled to on the table.
