Motor Vehicle Policies

My auto accident claim was denied. What should I do?

Your automobile insurance policy may look very straight forward, but the interpretation of its provisions can be complicated by many twists and turns.  One of the biggest issues that affects your claim is whether there are policies from automobiles not directly involved in the collision that can be used to pay your claim.  For instance, a client was told by her first attorney that the only policy that would cover the wrist injury she received as a passenger in an automobile collision was the $20,000 policy on the automobile that struck her.  After a review of the police crash report and an investigation, Attorney McMaster found two more policies with a total of $100,000 in additional benefits to which she was entitled on top of the initial $20,000.  She recovered the full $120,000.

It is important to have an attorney that is experienced in coverage issues to be sure you get all of the benefits available to you.

Attorney McMaster will review your case and give you an honest assessment of your situation.  There are a number of factors that need to be considered in order to determine the success of your claim.

Successful Case:

Police Officer Injured When Suspect Resists Arrest

This officer told a suspect that he was under arrest for minor charges. The suspect resisted arrest and struggled with the officer.  By the time the suspect was handcuffed, the officer had suffered a back injury that required surgery and eventually cost him his career.  The suspect violated  the Safety Rule of submitting to arrest and challenging the arrest in court.  Following that rule would have avoided the injury to the officer.

Although the suspect’s homeowner’s insurer tried to deny that the claim, saying that the claim was not covered because the suspect’s actions came under the intentional act exclusion of the insurance policy, Attorney McMaster pursued the case and successfully settled it.
