When you have to fight your own auto insurance company…call us first.

 

People buy uninsured motorist insurance (UM) because they want to protect themselves in the event they are injured by someone without insurance or by a hit and run driver who gets away.  It is amazing how often a UM claim is denied.  Call us when you need help fighting your insurance company to get the benefit you paid for.  Here are two examples: Two weeks ago we tried an uninsured motorist and won $88,000.00 for our client.  Last Friday we had a trial where the insurer denied the insured the benefits of the policy he paid for!  Another arbitration hearing led to another win.  This time we won our client $22,800.00.  One of the arbitrators wanted to deny the case outright, claiming we couldn’t prove the accident even happened; there were no witnesses, no photos and almost no observable damage to the car.  In the end we won because we had our case and client well prepared.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault then call the Law Office of Keith Short.  618-655-9499 or 618-254-0055.
