More often than not, Vermonters that are injured in an auto accident either don’t realize or tend to forget that regardless of who’s at fault, the insurance company covering the vehicle in which one was riding at the time of the accident is automatically liable to pay medical expenses, lost wages and other incidentals. In addition, any pedestrian hit by a vehicle is eligible for these same rewards, paid for by the insurance company of the driver of the responsible car. If this has happened to you, don’t hesitate to contact the Burlington car accident attorneys at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP for assistance with the important deadlines that must be followed in order to preserve your rights and relieve unwanted stress.
Additionally, many individuals may not realize that No-Fault insurance may not have the ability to recover money for the pain and suffering if you do not have what’s deemed a “serious injury”. In order to recover compensation for any loss one has sustained while in a car accident, a “serious injury” as defined by the Insurance law must be proven to exist. The list below contains several types of injuries that satisfy the “serious” requirement:
- Significant disfigurement (Such as a scar, if it is significant enough to cause a reasonable person to view the result as “unattractive, objectionable, or as the subject of pity or scorn”);
- Loss of a fetus;
- Significant limitation of use of a body, function, or system;
- Permanent consequential limitation of use of a body, organ, or member;
- Permanent loss of use of a body, organ, member, function, or system; and
- An impairment/injury of a non-permanent nature that prevents the victim from conducting his or her usual and customary daily activities for a period of at least 90 days during the 180 days immediately following the accident
The car accident lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP, The Heavy Hitters, use their knowledge and expertise to assess the medical care and treatment received in order to better understand and advise you whether one’s injuries qualify as “serious” under the Vermont State Insurance Law.
Did you know that the law also allows you to make a claim against your own automobile policy if you are the victim of a hit and run, or if a driver that was either uninsured or under-insured hit you? In addition, any pedestrian or occupant injured in a vehicle that they did not own may be entitled to additional insurance coverage under any insurance policy applicable to a vehicle that they own, or that of a vehicle owned by a resident relative of their household. Trying to understand all of the possible instances of insurance coverage is just another extremely important step in the legal process to maximize the monetary recovery from your injury, and one false step in this process can seriously cost you. Let the experienced car accident lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP in Burlington research the complex insurance coverage aspects of your case to guarantee that you receive your rightfully deserved compensation. This will not only give you peace of mind, but also allow you to focus on a speedy recovery.
