Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident and the party at fault is uninsured or has a policy with very low limits, and you have Uninsured / Underinsured (UM / UIM) coverage, you will also be able to start a claim with your own insurer.

(UM / UIM) motorist coverage is a type of insurance that you can purchase when you buy insurance coverage for your own vehicle. If you purchase it, your own insurer will help pay for your damages and injuries up to the limits of your policy, if the driver who caused the accident doesn’t have any insurance or does not have enough coverage.

UM / UIM coverage also helps you in other situations as well, such as:

  • When you are in a hit-and-run accident
  • If you are a pedestrian or on a bicycle
  • Or if you are a passenger in a friend’s car, in which case you can make a UM / UIM claim on both your own policy, as well as on your friends.

UM / UIM Coverage is sometimes Necessary to obtain Fair Compensation

Utilizing UM / UIM coverage is many times critical to obtaining fair compensation. In Ohio, the state minimum insurance coverage necessitated by law is $25,000.00 per person, per accident. This is an extremely low limit. Given this low limit, it is prudent to carry UM / UIM coverage, and it is often times necessary to utilize this coverage to obtain fair compensation.

Make no mistake, once you proceed to make a UM / UIM claim, your own insurer will view you like any other claimant, because you are now attempting to obtain compensation from them, which all insurance companies try to prevent, or at least minimize. Any perceived loyalty by your own insurer does not exist at that point. Keep this in mind as you proceed with all conversations and interactions from that point forward with all insurance companies, including even your own insurer.
