Have you been found “at-fault” in an auto accident?
Have you received the surcharge notice? If so, this means your insurance company determined you are more than 50% at-fault.
If you believe you are not more than 50% at-fault in the accident, then 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, give us a call for some suggestions. Good Luck! We are here to support you.
