  • Uninsured Drivers – Massachusetts requires all drivers to carry liability insurance for bodily injury to others. But thousands of people are illegally driving around with no auto insurance.
  • Hit and Run Accidents – Sometimes a driver responsible for a crash flees the scene before being identified. They have their own reasons not to stick around: intoxication, drugs in the car, suspended license, stolen car or simply fear their insurance rates will go up.
  • No Contact Accidents – Another driver forced you off the road (lane change, crossing the center line) but didn’t stop. They may not have even realized they caused an accident.

Uninsured Motorist Insurance

The good news is that you have coverage under your own car insurance for injuries or property damage caused by an insured driver or hit and run driver. This is called Uninsured Motorist/Underinsured Motorist, or UM/UIM.

Your claim for damages depends on your uninsured motorist policy limits. Many people carry only the minimum UM coverage, but your medical bills and other losses may exceed that amount. We explore all sources of insurance to pay for your losses.

A 9-year-old boy suffered head trauma when he was struck by an uninsured automobile while crossing the street. We secured a structured settlement of $55,000 under his deceased father’s insurance policy. See more examples of our Verdicts and Settlements.
