In the state of Connecticut, all drivers are required to purchase both liability and uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance coverage for protection in car accidents.
The minimum amount for both of these types of insurance is $20,000 per person and $40,000 per accident, but more coverage can be purchased if you choose. One option that is gaining popularity is underinsured motorist convergence coverage, which provides reimbursement for damages in excess of the underinsured motorist’s coverage.
While responsible Connecticut drivers carry these forms of insurance, purchasing a policy and actually getting the compensation you need are two drastically different things. The only way to ensure you are treated fairly and provided full compensation is with the help of a Connecticut car accident lawyer.

Dealing with Insurance Companies
The common misconception about insurance companies is that they are on your side. Sadly, even when you pay your premiums, know your insurance agent personally, and have a spotless driving record, your insurance company’s primary focus is their own profit. Part of that profit is earned by underpaying the injured in settlements.
Victims of serious personal injury deserve better than what insurance companies will usually offer. Our Connecticut car accident attorneys know what your case should be worth, and we will stand up to the insurance companies to get the full compensation you deserve.
