Auto insurance is designed to protect you if you’re hurt in an auto accident. Just because you have some insurance coverage doesn’t mean you’re fully covered if you have an accident. Unfortunately, the state minimum coverage isn’t always enough to cover your injury-related expenses after a car accident.
“I was under the impression that I was well covered. After the accident, I find out that even though I have full coverage, I’m not as well covered as I thought I was.”
Are You Really Protected?
Did you know that 14 percent of Americans have no insurance at all? What are you supposed to do if you’re hit by one of them?
Don’t rely on other drivers on the road to have enough insurance to cover the cost of your injuries and other damages. Make sure you have underinsured motorist protection (coverage if the other driver doesn’t have enough insurance) and uninsured motorist protection (coverage if the other driver has NO insurance).
If you don’t have enough insurance coverage, you may be left facing expenses for medical bills, lost wages, transportation costs, and more—all for an accident that wasn’t even your fault. That’s why it’s so important for you to protect yourself by reviewing your insurance policy with an insurance agent or your attorney.
