In the ever-changing landscape of road safety, being equipped with the right knowledge about Uninsured Motorist (UM) and Underinsured Motorist (UIM) policies is crucial. Fielding Law, as your trusted car accident attorneys, is here to guide you through the fundamentals of these policies, empowering you to make informed decisions that protect you in the aftermath of an accident.

Uninsured Motorist (UM) Coverage

  1. Protection Against Uninsured Drivers: UM coverage serves as a robust safety net when you encounter drivers without insurance. From minor collisions to severe accidents, UM steps in to help with medical expenses and damages, ensuring you are not left alone to bear the financial burden.
  2. Hit-and-Run Incidents: In the unfortunate event of a hit-and-run, where the at-fault driver flees the scene, UM coverage becomes invaluable. It provides coverage for your losses, offering financial assistance when the responsible driver remains unidentified.
  3. Extended Coverage for Vulnerable Road Users: UM policies often extend their protective reach to encompass vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. This broader coverage ensures comprehensive protection in various scenarios, reflecting our commitment to the well-being of all road users.

Underinsured Motorist (UIM) Coverage

  1. Supplementing Insufficient Coverage: UIM coverage acts as a crucial financial safety net when the at-fault driver’s insurance falls short. It bridges the financial gap, offering relief during challenging times.
  2. Comprehensive Medical Coverage: UIM coverage extends beyond bodily injury to property damage. Whether to your vehicle or other property, it provides financial assistance for restoration.
  3. Protection for Property Damage: UIM coverage includes protection for property damage from the accident, offering financial support for comprehensive coverage.
