A Framingham man was awarded, at arbitration, the full amount of uninsured benefits on his policy. An uninsured claim was presented to the plaintiff’s insurance company after he was struck when walking across the street by a motor vehicle that never stopped at the scene. Because the operator of that motor vehicle was never identified, a claim was pursued against the plaintiff’s own insurance company.
The claim was defended by the insurance company based on liability and damage. Eventually the case was tried to an independent arbitrator who found for the plaintiff. The plaintiff was awarded the amount of $30,000.00 which was in excess of the policy limits and is still pursuing an unfair and deceptive claim against the insurance company.
