Unlocking $300,000 in Protection: The Importance of Underinsured Motorist Coverage
In a recent case handled by Attorney Kevin Conaboy at ACA Law, a favorable resolution highlighted the importance of comprehensive insurance coverage for individuals involved in car accidents.
The Incident: The case revolved around a client who endured a life-altering car accident. While crossing the street, she was struck by a vehicle, leading to multiple fractures and the necessity of surgical intervention. The extent of her injuries demanded an extended stay at an inpatient rehabilitation facility, which resulted in the accumulation of substantial medical bills.
The Challenges: complicating matters, the driver responsible for the accident had minimal insurance coverage. While ACA Law successfully recovered what was available, it wasn't sufficient to fully address the client's needs.
The Solution: The client had wisely elected to purchase underinsured motorist coverage when obtaining her insurance policy. This decision provided an additional $300,000 for her recovery.
Insurance Insights: This case underlines a vital lesson for all when purchasing automobile insurance. It's not merely about safeguarding others: it's about protecting oneself as well. When discussing insurance options with your agent, explore additional coverages like underinsured motorist coverage and excess medical coverage. These protections come into play when another driver causes injuries, and their insurance falls short of compensating you adequately.
The Importance of Legal Support: In the event of an accident, seeking legal counsel promptly is crucial. At ACA Law, we fight for what's right, advocating for individuals who find themselves in such challenging circumstances.
