Have you been found “at-fault” in a Massachusetts slip & slide accident?
Have you received the surcharge notice? If so, this means your insurance company determined you more than 50% at-fault.
If you believe you were less than 50% at-fault, we believe you should appeal the surcharge.
When determining fault in an accident, unlike the insurance companies, the Board of Appeals takes into consideration contributing factors; such as: road condition (icy, wet, snow-covered), visibility, other vehicle erratic driving, etc.
Once you have received your hearing date you can: appear in person, submit a written statement, or select someone to appear on your behalf.
Appeal hearings are scheduled in: Boston, Brockton, Peabody, Plymouth, Somerville, Springfield, Waltham, or Worcester.
If you decide to appeal your surcharge, call your MA independent insurance agent for some suggestions.
If you don’t have an independent MA agent, give us a call.
We are here to support you.
