Injured in a Multi-Car Accident?
If you were injured in a multi-car accident, the first question our attorneys would ask you is: do you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage? Why do we want to know this? Because in a multi-car accident scenario, there are often multiple injury claimants. The at-fault driver often does not have enough insurance to cover everyone's injury claims. If you have underinsured motorist coverage (which will be listed on your policy as "uninsured motorist coverage") your insurance coverage may apply if the at-fault driver has insufficicent policy limits.
