If you have been injured in Connecticut, in a motor vehicle accident which has been caused by the fault of another, then the amount of insurance that the other driver has on his or her vehicle may be a factor in determining the value of your case. In other words, if you have been seriously injured, have significant medical bills and lost wages, and the other driver only has $25,000 worth of coverage along with no other assets, then this might be the most amount of money you can collect for your injuries and damages.
Naturally, there are a lot of other factors that need to be considered which would include, but not be limited to, whether or not you have available to you UIM coverage, whether or not there are other parties that might be liable for your injuries and damages, and many other issues that need to be investigated. It is extremely important that you consult with an experienced Connecticut personal injury lawyer at the earliest possible moment so you can get a better understanding as to the options which might be available to you.
One of the things that you will want to determine, very early on in your case, is how much insurance coverage the accident causing driver has. In Connecticut, Connecticut General Statute section 38a – 335a provides for the disclosure of automobile insurance policy limits. This statute sets forth what you must do to determine the motor vehicle insurance limits that were in place on the vehicle that caused your accident.
This is just one of many strategies that can be used to determine how you can resolve your case for the most amount of money in the shortest period of time. There are a great number of other strategies that can be used to determine what other sources or insurance policies might be available to compensate you for your injuries and damages.
