Boston Uninsured Motorist Accident Lawyer


Massachusetts boasts one of the lowest percentages of uninsured drivers in the nation.
Unfortunately, many of these uninsured drivers are involved in automobile accidents each year. Recovering compensation from an uninsured motorist is extremely difficult without the help of an experienced legal professional. Bringing a personal claim against the uninsured driver is usually futile. Such drivers usually lack the funds necessary to pay the victims expenses.

Similar to the issues presented by uninsured motorists, underinsured motorists create unique challenges in securing personal injury compensation. Massachusetts Law requires drivers to have the following amounts of coverage in order to register and drive a motor vehicle:

Required Coverage Required Minimum Limit
Bodily Injury to
Others
$20,000 per person;
$40,000 per accident
Personal Injury
Protection (PIP)
$8,000 per person, per accident
Bodily Injury Caused
by an Uninsured Auto
$20,000 per person;
$40,000 per accident
Damage to Someone
Else’s Property
$5,000 per accident

Sadly, medical expenses for those injured in car accidents can easily exceed twenty thousand dollars depending on the severity of injuries. As such, the minimum insurance requirements are often inadequate to fully compensate accident victims who suffer major injuries.

Depending on your policy, you may be able to collect from your own insurance company in the event that the other driver is uninsured or underinsured. This is no easy task; your insurance company will do everything they can to shift the blame for the accident and minimize your damages.

Dealing with insurance companies on your own is a daunting and frustrating task. They have virtually unlimited legal and financial resources.
