Uninsured Motorists and Connecticut Law

While all Connecticut motorists are required by law to carry car insurance, this is not always the reality. Many drivers are simply unwilling or unable to afford insurance premiums, and freely choose to disobey the law. This can present significant complications should the uninsured motorist's negligent driving cause a serious accident.

If you have been seriously injured by an uninsured motorist, you do have options. As part of your insurance policy, you have uninsured motorist (UM) coverage that is designed to protect you against these types of losses. In theory, you should be able to successfully submit an insurance claim up to your UM policy limits.

Unfortunately, your claim for UM policy benefits may be denied. In fact, this is a relatively common occurrence. You must remember that insurance companies are businesses, and that their primary objective is always to protect their bottom line. Our attorneys have invaluable insight into how insurance companies operate and have enjoyed considerable success fighting for the rights of the injured. Rest assured, they are dedicated to securing the benefits you need and deserve.

Please note: If you were struck by a negligent driver whose car insurance does not cover the full extent of your losses, you may file a claim for the remainder of your losses under your underinsured motorist coverage. This is very similar to filing an uninsured motorist claim.
