We Know How To Maximize Compensation
Many people who are in accidents with uninsured or underinsured drivers fear that they will have to pay their repair bills and medical bills themselves. If you were in a car accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, it is important to realize that you have rights. Auto insurance companies are required by law to offer people an uninsured motorist insurance (UIM) provision with their policy. We can make a claim with your auto insurance policy if you have this option.
We may be able to make a claim even if you do not have UIM coverage. If your insurance carrier has not properly documented your denial of this coverage, it may have to pay your claim.
In Rhode Island, you are allowed to stack UIM policies. This means that you may be able to receive more compensation by making claims under each auto insurance policy you have. We will review your policy and other policies that may provide coverage you are not aware of.
Insurance carriers fight to delay their judgment, which means clients are entitled to interest on the damages. Rhode Island has a plaintiff-friendly interest rate of 12 percent/year from the date of the accident. Our lawyers worked on the landmark case Metropolitan v. Barry, which came out of the Supreme Court of Rhode Island and set the standard for calculating interest in underinsured motorist cases.
