All vehicles in Massachusetts are required by law to carry insurance. While most drivers in the Commonwealth abide by this law, unfortunately, some do not. Being the victim of an accident is stressful enough and this is compounded when you learn the at-fault driver does not have insurance. However, you shouldn't panic. If you have suffered injuries after a car accident caused by a negligent uninsured driver, swift action is imperative, but there are viable options. If you do not act quickly, you may be risking losing your ability to recoup medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering compensation, property damage reimbursement, and more.

In Massachusetts, uninsured motorist coverage is optional. However, our Boston car accident lawyers recommend all drivers to include it as part of their policy, which is often available for an affordable price. Usually, uninsured motorist covered is packaged with "underinsurance" coverage, which offers additional protection. Once uninsured motorist coverage is purchased, you and your household members are covered if they are injured following a car accident with an uninsured motorist. Coverage up to $500,000 can be purchased in Massachusetts.Nearly One In 10 Massachusetts Drivers Are Uninsured
According to the Insurance Research Council, one in ten Massachusetts cars and trucks are on the road, without insurance. As the economy has continued to spiral downward, it has been estimated that now nearly one in seven Massachusetts drivers are uninsured. Further, stolen vehicles or those being used "without permission" are often not covered, even if the owner has insurance.We Explore Every Option To Obtain Your Fair Compensation
If you have been involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist, one possibility to recover the damages you have sustained is to make a claim against the personal assets of the liable driver. However, this is often challenging, as the uninsured driver is often without viable assets. Consequently, our car accident attorneys will also likely make a claim against any insurance available on other vehicles in the liable motorist's household and even file a claim against your own insurance company for uninsured coverage under your policy.Our Vast Experience With Insurance Companies On Your Side
Make no mistake about it, if you are forced to make a claim against your own insurance company to cover damages caused by an uninsured driver, they will be less concerned with your bills and more with their finances.

We know what you are entitled to receive and will get you full and fair compensation.
