How Do I Protect Myself Against Uninsured And Underinsured Drivers? – Dlp Represents Seriously Injured Victims Of Auto, Truck, Bus And Motorcycle Accidents

Posted by John Finnerty & filed under Areas of Practice, Auto Accidents, DLP Law, Insurance Disputes, Motorcycle Accidents, Serious Injury, Truck Accidents, Workers Compensation.


Northeastern Pennsylvania roadways are littered with uninsured and underinsured drivers.  If an uninsured or underinsured driver’s negligence and carelessness causes an accident wherein you are injured, you may be left without any source of recovery for your damages, including lost wages, medical expenses, and pain & suffering.  The only way to protect yourself against these uninsured and underinsured drivers is to make sure that you purchase sufficient uninsured motorists (UM) and underinsured motorists (UIM) benefits on your own auto insurance policy.  You should purchase UM/UIM coverages in the same amount as the liability coverage you maintain on your auto insurance policy.  Additionally, you should make sure you purchase “stacked” UM/UIM coverage as it increases your limits by the number of vehicles on your policy.  You should not waiver UM/UIM coverage or stacking even if you are trying to save some money on your auto insurance premium.  The small savings you may receive on your premium is not worth the risk and exposure you have if an uninsured or underinsured driver’s negligence causes injuries to your or a family member.
