Nobody wants to be involved in an auto accident, and being hit by an underinsured or uninsured motorist can be everybody's worst nightmare.

Dedication and Experience that Works
At the Law Offices of John J. LaCava, LLC, we represent people who have been injured by an underinsured or uninsured motorist and help them to obtain compensation through their own automobile insurance policies.
How does this work? Automobile insurance is basically a package of several smaller policies bundle together. One policy that you are required to carry is underinsured / uninsured motorists' coverage. In Connecticut, the minimum amount of UM / UIM coverage is $20,000 per victim up to a total of $40,000 per accident, and many drivers in Connecticut carry only this minimum amount. Unfortunately, if the accident is serious this amount will likely not come close to covering even the actual medical costs. What all this means is that when you are injured by an uninsured motorist, compensation — up to whatever amount you elected to pay for — is available through your own insurer.
Sometimes however, insurers need a little push in the right direction to get them to honor their responsibilities.
This is where our experience with first-party insurance claims is invaluable. Why? Because insurance companies generally seem to "behave" better when they see that a claimant has experienced trial attorneys representing them.
