Uninsured Motorist Coverage Information
An alarmingly high amount of drivers do not carry adequate auto insurance coverage. In fact, by some estimates, as many as nearly one-quarter of drivers do not carry the minimum amounts of car insurance coverage. We highly recommend that you carry uninsured motorist coverage to protect yourself.

What Is Uninsured Motorist Insurance?
State law requires that every comprehensive auto insurance policy include uninsured motorist coverage in an amount equal to the limits for bodily injury and property damage listed in the policy. However, you have the options to reject uninsured motorist coverage in writing. In other words, if your auto insurance policy provides the minimum coverage for bodily injury and property damage, it will also provide this amount of coverage for accidents with uninsured or under-insured motorists. You may be able to recover additional amounts of money under other insurance policies as well. This process is can be confusing and many victims do not get adequate compensation following an accident with an uninsured motorist without the help of an attorney.
