Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist

We are trailblazing through the nuances of the law regarding the defense of uninsured and underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) matters in our respective jurisdictions. Clients tap into our expertise early in the claims process to evaluate injury claims and UM/UIM coverage issues. We regularly counsel clients in new developments in the ever-changing UM/UIM arena and we are not afraid to defend the cases that should be defended. Our client-focused uninsured/underinsured motorist practice aims to alleviate the stress inherent in the litigation process while we work to make our clients confident and secure during the pre-trial phase as well as during trial.

As part of our commitment to meet our insurance carrier clients’ educational and professional development needs, we provide presentations and seminars on claims strategy and handling so matters are resolved in a timely, reasonable, and fair manner.
