Strong Representation When You Are Hit By An Underinsured Or Uninsured Driver
Pennsylvania law requires auto insurance companies to offer drivers the critical protection of uninsured (UM) and underinsured (UIM) motorist coverage with their regular policies. Unless you signed a specific waiver with the state declining coverage, you have this coverage in place to help when you are in an accident caused by a driver who lacks sufficient insurance.
However, that does not mean that getting fair compensation for your car accident injuries and losses will be easy. At Conlon Tarker, P.C., we understand what it takes to convince the insurance companies to be reasonable – even if that requires going to litigation. Attorneys Ray Conlon and Jeff Tarker are both experienced trial lawyers, and they have been successfully advocating for Butler area clients for decades.
Why Do You Need A Lawyer To Make A UM Or UIM Claim?
You might think that filing a claim with your own insurer would be easy, but no insurance company is eager to pay on their policies. An attorney can help with:
- Understanding the terms and conditions of your insurance policy, including coverage limits and exclusions
- Navigating the complex claims process so that all the procedural steps are properly followed and your claim cannot be denied on a technicality
- Determining the full extent of your damages, including lost wages, property losses and your pain and suffering
- Negotiating with the insurance company and resolving disagreements about the cause of the accident, liability or the extent of the damages
In short, we can handle the details of your claim while you focus on your recovery. If your claim is denied, we can also appeal the decision and pursue the benefits you are due.
