Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claims
Essex County Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Lawyer
Hit By an Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist?
If you are the victim of a hit-and-run or another accident involving an uninsured/underinsured motorist, you might wonder: what next? Who will pay for your car damage, medical bills and other losses? If you have uninsured/underinsured auto insurance, you may be able to receive financial compensation from your own insurance company.
When you meet with the Law Offices of Gary J. Natale, P.C., we will review the insurance policies involved in your accident to determine whether or not you have a claim and if there are any limits to it. We use more than 20 years of legal experience to provide our clients with the personal attention, knowledge and case preparation that has become our hallmark.
Located in West Orange, New Jersey, personal injury attorney Gary Natale represents clients throughout Essex County, Hudson County and Union County.
Will My Rates Go Up?
Many people are afraid to go after their own insurance company because they do not want their car insurance rates to increase. This fear is unfounded. If the uninsured or underinsured driver’s negligence caused your accident, your rates will not go up.
Arbitrating Uninsured/Underinsured Claims
In New Jersey, uninsured or underinsured motorist claims do not go to trial. Instead, they are handled in arbitration. Insurance arbitration is a less formal alternative to court, during which three impartial referees hear both sides of the case and make a decision. Both parties must agree to follow the arbitrator’s decision. Arbitration is less costly and less time consuming than court.
Our law firm has many years of experience handling uninsured/underinsured motorist arbitrations. We will help you build a strong case so that your insurance company and the arbitrators can clearly understand the extent of your injuries.
