Not only could you be left with significant medical bills, but you may also be out of work for a time. Then, you would be burdened with expenses and unable to bring in earnings.
Other losses could be recovered in an accident that you may miss if you don’t have UM coverage. Pain and suffering, mental anguish, and disability are just some of those losses. Even if the other driver has no ability to pay you for these things, you can still receive compensation if you have this type of motorist coverage.
The other reason UM coverage is important is that it’s an inexpensive way to protect you and your family. It doesn’t usually cost much and should be purchased in the highest amounts you can afford. The more coverage you have, the more compensation you may be entitled to.

If you’ve been injured in an auto accident and the one at fault does not have or has limited insurance, you could be entitled to retribution. The first step is establishing that the other driver was at fault. This could include the individual being distracted while driving, violating a traffic law, or any other type of negligence behind the wheel.
