Uninsured drivers Hit and Run and Underinsured Drivers
If you were injured in a hit and run accident, or injured by a driver who did not carry insurance, there are often options that may be available to you for money damages. Every person operating a vehicle in Connecticut must carry insurance and along with that insurance comes uninsured motorist coverage.. If the person who caused your inures was Uninsured or left the scene of the collision you may be able to look to your own coverage for compensation. This is a very complicated area of law in which Attorney Siegel is well versed and prepared to assert your rights against you own insurance carrier if there is no insurance on the other car.
In cases where the other vehicle does have insurance but your injuries exceed the value of that coverage you may be entitled to additional compensation from your own insurance company depending on how much Underinsurance you have. Attorney Siegel knows the law in this complicated area and will find any insurance coverage available that other attorneys may miss.
Auto insurance companies are businesses striving to maintain their bottom line. Even when representing their own policyholders, they want to settle claims as cost-effectively as possible. This may mean offering you a settlement amount far less than you actually deserve.

The Siegel Law Firm firm is committed to helping you obtain the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries and damages to your property.
