Uninsured Motorist Claims in Pennsylvania
Fight for Just Compensation
If you are involved in a car accident with a negligent driver who is uninsured (or who does not have enough liability insurance to cover the costs of your injuries and other damages), you may be able to file a claim against your own uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) motorist policy. UM/UIM coverage is not mandatory in the state of Pennsylvania, but it is highly recommended, considering an estimated 1 in 7 drivers are uninsured.
In order to recover damages from your own insurance company, you must have had uninsured/underinsured motorist protection in effect on your auto insurance policy at the time of the accident. The maximum amount you can recover depends on the limits you chose when you bought the policy.

Bad Faith Insurance Tactics
If the other driver is underinsured or uninsured, you may look to your own insurance company to recover costs. But your insurance company cannot always be trusted. It is looking after its own financial interests first and foremost. The insurance adjuster is out to give you the lowest amount to settle your claim that they possibly can, even when the other driver is clearly at fault.
