How Uninsured And Underinsured Motorist Coverage Works
Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage is a type of auto insurance provided by your own insurance company intended to protect you from the actions of people who don’t carry auto insurance or who don’t have sufficient auto insurance to cover the damages they cause in car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. This kind of coverage is relatively inexpensive. Moreover, your insurance company cannot raise your insurance policy premiums for making an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim.
Unfortunately, your financial well-being is not usually the primary concern of your insurance company. The first goal of insurance companies is to secure profit for their financial stakeholders. For this reason, most insurance companies do not recommend that you purchase uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
To protect drivers, the North Carolina Department of Insurance requires that kind of coverage be offered by your insurance company as part of your auto insurance policy. Clients choosing to reject this specific coverage must do so in writing, at least in regard to the original insurance policy. If your insurance company claims that you rejected this coverage, or that it does not exist under your original policy, our experienced personal injury lawyers will investigate the company’s claims and make sure that your rights are protected.
