I have been notified by my car insurance company that a lawsuit has been started against me and that the amount of the claim may be higher than my coverage. What should I do?
Contact a personal injury lawyer right away. If you are in the Hamilton area feel free to contact us.
There are 4 things we can do for you:
- We will search for any additional coverage that may help you. For example you may have umbrella liability insurance coverage on your home, apartment, or cottage.
- We will try to force the plaintiff and insurance company to settle the claim within your insurance policy limits.
- If the claim can’t be settled within the limits we will try to set up a bad faith claim against your own insurance company so that your insurance company and not you will have to pay the amount over your limits.
- We will help defend that claim and reduce that amount of the judgement as much as possible.
