People buy uninsured motorist insurance (UM) because they want to protect themselves in the event they are injured by someone without insurance or by a hit and run driver who gets away. It is amazing how often a UM claim is denied. Call us when you need help fighting your insurance company to get the benefit you paid for. Here are two examples: Two weeks ago we tried an uninsured motorist and won $88,000.00 for our client. Last Friday we had a trial where the insurer denied the insured the benefits of the policy he paid for! Another arbitration hearing led to another win. This time we won our client $22,800.00. One of the arbitrators wanted to deny the case outright, claiming we couldn’t prove the accident even happened; there were no witnesses, no photos and almost no observable damage to the car. In the end we won because we had our case and client well prepared.
