What it pays: Your expenses from an accident caused by an uninsured motorist or a motorist who did not have enough insurance to cover your bills, up to your policy’s dollar limits. Also pays for accidents caused by a hit-and-run driver if you reported the accident promptly to police.
- Bodily injury UM/UIM pays without deductibles for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and permanent or partial disability.
- Property damage UM/UIM pays for auto repairs, a rental car, and damage to items in your car. There is an automatic $ 250 deductible, which means you must pay the first $ 250 of the repairs yourself.
Who it covers: You, your family members, passengers in your car, and others driving your car with your permission.
Insurers must offer UM/UIM coverage. If you don’t want it, you must reject it in writing.
