Protecting Yourself with Underinsured Motorist Coverage
When a car accident on the 101 freeway occurs, it is critical that the parties involved in the collision have enough insurance coverage to pay for the injuries and damages that resulted in the crash. However, there are many drivers who don’t have adequate insurance or are driving around uninsured. When an accident with a driver like this takes place, it sheds light on the importance of having uninsured motorist coverage.
All drivers in Southern California should have uninsured motorist coverage. This type of coverage is among the least expensive to buy, but it is among the most important types of insurance coverage. Uninsured motorist coverage not only protects you in your vehicle in the event of a crash, but it covers you and your family members if you are hit as pedestrians or passengers aboard a bus. If the driver who caused the crash has no insurance, not enough insurance, or fled the scene of the accident, your uninsured coverage would kick in to cover your injuries.
If you have questions about this type of coverage or you need help pursuing a personal injury claim, please contact the Law Offices of John P. Rosenberg in Woodland Hills at (818) 530-1770 for a Personalized Consultation or online.
