The situation that is unique to you has happened to others who have experienced anger and frustration because their vehicle was smashed and perhaps towed.

In conjunction with pursuing your case against the negligent driver, your New Haven County automobile accident attorney will also examine the contents of your policy to determine the amount of bodily injury/liability coverage is provided. He will ascertain the amount of your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage you have and whether you have purchased conversion coverage or double insured motorist protection.
An automobile accident attorney will always advise you to purchase underinsured motorist coverage to insulate you from incurring losses if you are injured by a motorist is uninsured or underinsured. The coverage best suited for your protection and that of your family is described as underinsured motorist conversion which guarantees you the full extent of the coverage you purchased regardless of the amount received from the driver responsible for the crash.
An automobile accident attorney is familiar with the terms of policy which affords you the most complete protection and will clearly explain its terms so you have confidence in selecting the best policy to serve your purposes. Therefore, it is well to consult with an automobile accident attorney at the time you are choosing an appropriate policy. It is a service he will be pleased to provide without charge.
By way of example, if an at-fault motorist has a $20,000 limit policy and your policy has a limit of $50,000 without conversion, you can only make a claim for the difference or $30,000. ($50,000 – $20,000 = $30,000 ). You are well-advised, therefore, to have obtained conversion coverage which allows you to make a claim for $50,000 and if you have double underinsured coverage you will have $100,000 coverage in addition to the $20,00 available from the negligent driver.
