While driving to work I was hit by another vehicle. What happens if the other driver does not have insurance?

If you were driving a vehicle for work, during the course of your employment with your company, and were hit, whether or not you were at fault, you may be eligible to make a workers’ compensation claim. This type of an accident claim can be complex. The first thing you should do is talk to us at Melaragno, Placidi & Parini so we can look at the circumstances of your accident.

If the alleged at-fault driver does not have vehicle insurance, which is common in Pennsylvania, you can be left in a very difficult situation because you cannot be compensated for your injuries. In an ideal world, both drivers involved in the accident would have uninsured motorist (UM) coverage that acts to protect drivers from accidents. Despite the difficulty of seeking compensation from an uninsured motorist, there are ways to make that happen. At Melaragno, Placidi & Parini, we can outline the process for you during your first, free case consultation.

Attorney Parini impressed me as soon as I met him.

I knew right off the bat that this attorney was the person I wanted to represent me. His very intimidating posture, led me to believe he could handle anything that would come his way. The man is a winner.

He handled everything so I didn’t have to worry and could just focus on my recovery and get back to work. He was always available and quick to return my phone calls and emails with the answers I needed. My case was handled quickly and with no added stress to me or my family. I would recommend Matt to anyone in need of assistance after a motor vehicle accident.
