Pennsylvania Car and Automobile Accident Attorneys
Being involved in an accident is already a traumatic experience that can leave you with many questions about your future. When the other driver or pedestrian does not have insurance or sufficient insurance to cover your damages, it will only make the process more difficult. You may need to file an underinsured or uninsured motorist claim with your own auto insurance company. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always offer their own policyholders sufficient amounts of compensation for their injuries and damages.
At the law firm of Tom Crenney & Associates, we can provide the advice and representation necessary for our clients to pursue underinsured, uninsured and bad faith motorist claims in Pennsylvania. Before you accept a settlement that is not sufficient to cover your expenses or negotiate with your insurance company, talk with a lawyer who has more than two decades of experience in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area.
If you have been involved in an accident with a driver who does not have insurance or sufficient insurance for your damages, contact us at Tom Crenney & Associates today to speak with an attorney.
Underinsured and Uninsured Motorists in Western Pennsylvania
When you purchase your insurance coverage, you have the expectation that your insurance company will live up to the obligations that are outlined in the policy. Insurance companies do not always live up to their obligations, however, and motorists who do not understand their rights may end up losing them. Motorists may face problems when their insurance companies:
- Attempt to pay you less than the value of your claim. In some cases, insurers have threatened to refuse to pay anything on a claim unless the claimants gave up their rights to full compensation. This is an illegal practice in Pennsylvania.
- Fail to offer uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, or offer coverage that is less than your liability limits.
- Fail to reasonably investigate claims or to treat your interests with importance
Recently, in Pennsylvania, insurance companies have started to write policies that force claimants to resolve disputes in a jury trial, instead of mediation or other alternative forms of resolution. Since jury trials are often much more expenses and time consuming, they act to dissuade many claimants from pursuing denied or insufficient claims.
