Know Your Options!
Despite the fact that car insurance is mandatory for registered vehicles in most states, there are many drivers who drive without any insurance or maintain only the required state minimum coverages. The best way to protect yourself is making sure you have plenty of UM & UIM coverage on your auto insurance policy.
How Does UM/UIM Help Me?
Uninsured motorist (UM) coverage is used when the at-fault driver can’t pay due to lack of insurance.
Underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage is used when the driver’s liability limits are lower than the costs of the accident.
What Can I Do?
In the event a driver or passengers are injured due to the negligence of an uninsured or underinsured driver, you may seek compensation for injuries and damages through the UM and UIM portions of your own auto insurance policy.
What Does UM/UIM Insurance Pay For?
Coverage for bodily injury provides insurance for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement and permanent or partial disability.
Coverage for property damage provides insurance for auto repairs, total loss, rental car and damage to personal items carried in the vehicle.
How Does UM/UIM Insurance Work?
In order for UM/UIM to pay, it must be established that the other driver was at fault.
