Filing A Claim Against Your UIM Policy
If you have been involved in an accident with an uninsured driver time is of the essence. One of the first things that you need to do is to notify your insurance company of your intent to file a claim against your own underinsured motorist (UIM) policy. It is imperative that this is done as soon as it is physically possible because some insurers have strict notification deadlines regarding uninsured motorist claims. Depending on who your insurer is, you may have limited time to give them notification of your intent to file.
The Ticking Clock
If you have sustained injuries from your accident, the last thing that you want to do is spend your time down at your local police station, or courthouse trying to do research to find information that may or may not exist in the person that caused your accident. Often times in these types of accidents the uninsured motorist will refuse to provide any information, and some will even flee the scene before the police arrive.
If you were hit by an uninsured driver in the Bridgeport area, or any coastal community in Connecticut, you don’t have to stand up to your insurance company alone.

Not The Typical Car Accident Case
Uninsured motorist claims are complicated and differ from other types of motor vehicle accident claims. In many cases, you will not know the extent of your injuries until after your medical treatment begins and a treatment plan is determined. It is only at this stage that your attorney will be able to determine the value of your case.
