Underinsured and Uninsured Motorists Coverage – UIM Police for Hit and Run AccidentUnderinsures and uninsured insurance is a supplement to an auto accident insurance coverage mandated by the state of California. Under states laws drivers of vehicles driven on the road must carry liability insurance coverage set at a minimum of $15,000 for injuries sustained to one individual and $30,000 overall. This means that if you are involved in an accident where you are placed at fault your insurance company will step in and compensate the injured party up to but not exceeding the policy limits of your coverage. But what happens is you are involved in an auto accident where the other party is places a fault but does have insurance or his insurance coverage is not enough to provide full compensation for the damages you have incurred. In these circumstances individuals who have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage are able to file a claim against their own insurance provider for the damages suffered. This also applies to instances of hit and run accidents where the at fault party could not be apprehended by authorities.
Compensation AvailableVictims who have Uninsured and or underinsured motorist coverage may be able to receive compensation from their own insurance carrier for all damages including.
- All medical and health related expenses.
- Al future medical care and rehabilitation expenses.
- Pain and suffering including emotional trauma and mental anguish
