Program Materials

This CLE webinar will guide personal injury counsel in understanding how to boost their clients' recovery in cases involving uninsured or underinsured motorists with auto insurance stacking. The panel will discuss when and how accident victims can leverage multiple coverages in their insurance policies.

Description

Auto accident victims and their attorneys must understand how insurance coverage affects case outcomes in order to maximize personal injury recovery. Victims of accidents involving uninsured or underinsured motorists may be able to obtain recovery from their own insurer if they have a stacked policy.

Policy stacking allows insured victims to combine their coverages for uninsured and underinsured motorist benefits to increase potential recovery when their insurance policy covers more than one vehicle. Without stacking, coverage for injuries is limited to the face value of the insurance policy.

Policy stacking is one of the most commonly litigated issues in auto accident cases in which the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured. Personal injury counsel must understand how courts are addressing insurance stacking and how to leverage stacking to boost their clients' outcomes.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines the latest trends in insurance stacking and best practices to maximize settlement awards for auto accident victims in cases involving uninsured or underinsured motorists.
