Compensation Even When The Other Driver Is Uninsured

By law, all Connecticut drivers must carry liability insurance. In fact, not everyone does. As a result, every year there are hundreds of cases in which a person is seriously hurt and can’t file a claim with the other party’s insurance company. Uninsured motorists are typically poor or undocumented people, with no assets to go after.

In addition to uninsured motorists, many car accident drivers are underinsured. Their coverage is thin and cannot pay your medical bills if you have anything worse than a scratch.

So what do you do? You file an uninsured motorist claim through your own insurance policy. Most motorists are covered for these kinds of accidents. The problem is your own insurance company then becomes the villain, often denying their own customer coverage, offering to pay only the bare minimum, or paying it, then raising rates through the roof.

When I injured my back at work my employer denied that my injury occurred at work. Because of this they would not pay me disability benefits and pay for my doctors’ bills. Since my back injury was so serious that it required surgery I could not work. My not having a pay check placed my family in a bad situation.
Although many of the issues in my case were complex, Attorney Sousa constantly met with me to explain what was going on with my case. He answered all my questions. Without the legal assistance I received from Sousa & Minogue, LLC , I do not know where my family would be today.
