Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage 101

Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage can provide protection in several different situations, including:

  • Uninsured motorist bodily injury
  • Underinsured motorist bodily injury
  • Uninsured motorist property damage
  • Underinsured motorist property damage

All of these coverage options will help cover the costs that are associated with a collision with an uninsured or underinsured motorist.

Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage can help provide protection from many different situations on the road for a relatively inexpensive cost. In the state of Texas, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage will also provide coverage if your vehicle is damaged in a hit and run accident.

Most states the insurance company of the person who is at fault for the accident will pay for the damages in a collision. If the person who is at fault does not have any insurance, or does not have enough insurance, the other driver will end up having to pay for the damages.
