Lack of Proper Insurance
In many cases, the victim of a car accident is either completely uncovered or inadequately covered by insurance. It happens even in Massachusetts where car insurance is compulsory. Many drivers do not have adequate coverage for themselves much less for passengers or others injured in an accident that they caused. In the event of an accident, if the car is adequately covered by automobile insurance, it should also have in place coverage for passengers in the car during the accident. As discussed above insurance exists to protect a person in the event of an accident with an uninsured motor vehicle.
The basic factors that play a role in a personal injury claim are the type of insurance policies in place for the vehicles involved, cause of the accident and the extent of injuries. As a Boston car accident lawyer, attorney Fernandez can help evaluate your claim and help start the process of getting compensation.
