Auto insurance can be an expense that many residing in Connecticut may not feel they can afford. Even though state law requires that the appropriate insurance be obtained before driving a motor vehicle, too many individuals still fail to meet this requirement and drive their cars anyway. What happens if you get injured in an accident with an uninsured motorist? How can you get compensation for your losses?
When struck by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you will likely have to use your own insurance policy to cover your losses. This may not seem right, but it is your best chance at receiving any form of compensation. Unfortunately, when an accident of this nature does occur, even if your policy includes uninsured motorist protection, your provider may still try to avoid making full and fair payments.
As wrong as this is, as it is a policy you pay for, it happens. As a consequence, many individuals are left trying to cover their after-accident expenses out of pocket. Those who find themselves dealing with such situations can seek legal assistance.
