The underinsured motorist insurance attorneys at the Philadelphia personal injury law firm of The Levin Firm understand that being in an auto accident is stressful enough, but sometimes people find themselves involved in accidents with other drivers who are not carrying enough insurance to fully cover their damages. Our personal injury underinsured motorist insurance lawyers, know that many people don’t realize that you may be able to recover the balance of your bills through your own insurance company, as long as your policy includes uninsured motorist insurance protection. Many insurance companies require you to file your claim within a matter of weeks, so you should consult an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.
There are a number of different issues involved with underinsured motorist cases. First, you must be able to prove that the other driver was the one at fault. Then, you must also be able to prove the monetary value of your claim and show that the other motorist’s insurance coverage cannot fully compensate you for your damages. At The Levin Firm, we will conduct a thorough investigation into all these matters in order to ensure that you recover all the money to which you are entitled through your underinsured motorist claim.
The way underinsured motorist cases are tried depends on your policy. While some are held in a regular courtroom before your local court of common pleas, most underinsured motorist cases are not tried in court like many other kinds of cases. Rather, they are heard before a panel of three arbitrators: one chosen by the insurance company, one chosen by your attorney on your behalf, and a third chosen by the other two arbitrators. The attorneys at The Levin Firm, have worked with many arbitrators in their careers, and know how to pick the best arbitrator for your particular case. The three arbitrators listen to the evidence in your case and collectively reach a decision.
