Uninsured motorist insurance is so counterintuitive for personal injury victims. First, it is hard to get your mind around the idea that your own insurance company will pay for the harm suffered in an accident. Still, people get over that one pretty quickly because they are just happy someone else is standing by the claim.
But, where victims become particularly incensed is in wrongful death uninsured motorist cases where there is a liability dispute. Details of Maryland uninsured motorist laws are hard to absorb when all you can see is your insurance company representing the uninsured or underinsured person who killed your child/spouse/sibling.
This post here – “My Sister Paid Progressive Insurance to Defend Her Killer in Court” – does a wonderful job of articulating this anger and frustration.
