All drivers in the United States are required to carry motor vehicle insurance as a part of their responsibility to protect the safety of others on the road. When they ignore this responsibility and cause a motor vehicle accident, you may be unsure what options you have — if any — to recover compensation for your injuries.
The Law Office of James A. Maniatis provides personal injury representation focused on your needs, no matter the complexities involved. Our Worcester attorney has experience handling uninsured motorists coverage issues throughout eastern Massachusetts. He will work with your own insurance company to obtain the compensation you need.
Understanding PIP and Uninsured Motorist Coverages
Most insurance policies include personal injury protection (PIP) and uninsured motorist coverages. If you are involved in a car accident involving an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you can seek compensation through your insurance coverage for:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages while you recover
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of work life expectancy
You have paid insurance premiums for years to help you in just this situation. We will help you gather the necessary evidence — including accident reports and medical documentation — to build a strong claim. We will then negotiate with your insurance company on your behalf so you can focus on getting better.
Shrewsbury Attorney for Issues Involving Underinsured Motorists
While every driver is required to carry insurance, some only pay for minimum coverage, which may not be enough to cover all your medical expenses and lost wages. In such cases, we can help you seek additional coverage through your underinsurance coverage.
The rules and procedures for applying for underinsurance coverage are highly complicated. Lawyer James Maniatis understands the language of insurance policies, and he will explain your rights in clear, understandable terms. He will then negotiate with insurance agents on both sides to obtain maximum compensation for you. If necessary, he is always prepared to take matters to court to protect your rights.
