What is uninsured/underinsured motorists coverage?
uninsured/underinsured motorists coverage is In the best of all possible worlds, everyone would have adequate auto liability coverage. But there are people who drive around (often illegally) with no insurance or not enough insurance. If one of these folks happens to cause an accident, you might not be able to collect damages. Uninsured/underinsured motorists coverage — usually called UM/UIM coverage — will pay bodily injury costs caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist. It’s a required coverage in some states, and a prudent coverage anywhere. Usually, the limits are the same as the bodily injury portion of your auto liability coverage. UM/UIM coverage can supplement the benefits you can receive under a no- fault system.
