What does uninsured motorist coverage mean?

Uninsured motoristUninsured Motorist coverage (which is required coverage in many states) covers injuries that the driver and occupants of a car sustain when the at-fault vehicle was not insured for liability coverage. UM does not cover the physical damage to the vehicle. UMPD (uninsured motorist property damage), where available, covers that physical damage. UMPD is essentially similar to collision coverage, which is first party insurance that pays regardless of fault, subject to a deductible.Uninsured motorist coverage pays essentially the same type of benefits (such as for pain and suffering) as the liability insurance of the other party would pay if the at-fault party had liability insurance. Additionally, the uninsured motorist insurer will generally evaluate a claimant's injuries in much the same way as a liability insurer would, and the claimant is subject to a reduction in damages for contributory or comparative negligence according to the law of the jurisdiction.

In a three car pile up who's insurance pays when the third car is uninsured?

This depends on the specific state's laws in which you live. Generally in a pile-up the insurance companies duke it out, and often each goes through his/her own company for coverage, which would leave the uninsured motorist with no coverage for their vehicle. For injuries, depending on fault, you may possibly draw from the uninsured motorist coverage.


What does waiver of collision deductible coverage in California for uninsured motorists coverage?

The California Collision Deductible Waiver (CDW) is coverage which waives your collision deductible if you are hit by a negligent uninsured motorist. The CDW option with a personal auto insurance policy in California pays your collision deductible when you carry collision coverage on a vehicle that is damaged by an uninsured or hit-and-run motorist who is at fault. Coverage typically applies only when there is actual physical contact and when you can identify the uninsured driver or vehicle. Some insurance companies will not even talk about the coverage even if it is included in your policy until you bring it to their attention.


Coverage To Drive?

If you are driving a car in the state of Illinois, then you need to carry insurance on the vehicle. Uninsured motorists can get insurance at affordable rates if they know where to look. There is a minimum amount of coverage that the driver needs to have on their insurance. This amount is not high so that drivers can get insurance coverage at an affordable rate. However, if a driver wants to take a risk and let someone else drive their car, they need to carry uninsured motorist insurance on their policy. The minimum amount for this coverage is $20,000. This covers the driver of the car if they were in an accident and were not covered under an insurance policy. In the event of a car accident and the driver of your car or the other car were not covered under their own insurance policy, the uninsured motorist coverage would protect not only yourself but the other drivers in the accident. The coverage will pay for any medical necessities that are incurred during the accident and any wages that are lost. The coverage will only pay up to the amount that you have on your insurance policy. Anything over this amount will be the responsibility of the driver. If the accident was the fault of the other driver, then their insurance will cover up to the amount listed on their policy and then your insurance will cover the remaining amount. An uninsured policy is different than an underinsured policy. An underinsured driver has insurance, but they may not have enough coverage to pay for the expenses if the driver were in an accident. An uninsured motorist has no insurance at all. The only way that an uninsured motorist can usually drive a vehicle is if there is a family member who has taken out the uninsured motorist coverage on their insurance. An uninsured policy is not expensive to get, but it would be best for the driver to obtain their own policy as soon as possible.


Can the driver at fault file a claim to his own insurance for bodily injury under his uninsured motorist portion of his policy if he was driving a friend's vehicle who had no insurance coverage?

No. Insurance follows the vehicle primary, driver secondary. Since the driver is at fault and there is no coverage under the vehicle itself, the drivers policy would pay for any bodily injury or property damage he may have caused. Therefore uninsured motorist coverage would not apply. The only way that driver would have coverage for himself is if he already had Med Pay coverage on his own policy.

You have collision insurance is uninsured motorist insurance necessary?

Collision insurance will cover the damages to your vehicle- no matter who is at fault. Uninsured coverage is used if the other vehicle is at fault for the accident and you and/or anyone in your car is injured. This coverage will typically pay for related medical bills, loss wages, and general damages (i.e pain and suffering). Liability = Other vehicle damage Injuries to driver/passenger in other vehicle Injuries to passengers in your vehicle if you are at fault Collision/Comprehensive = Cover damages to your car Uninsured/Under-insured = Injuries to you or your passengers when another vehicle is at fault and does not have insurance or has minimum coverage

What does stacked insurance mean in Florida?

Stacked coverage means that you may combine your coverage limits for each automobile insured under your policy. For example, if you insure three cars and obtain stacked coverage with limits of $10,000 per person and $20,000 per accident for each auto. Your stacked, or combined, coverage will total $30,000 per person and $60,000 per accident. If the coverage was unstacked, then the limit of coverage for each vehicle would be $10,000 per person and $20,000 per accident.Stacked Uninsured Motorist Insurance is the best type of UM insurance to protect you and your family. Here is how Uninsured Motorist insurance works. It will pay for your damages if you get in an accident with an at-fault driver who does not have ANY Bodily Injury Insurance, which is called an Uninsured Motorist


Does uninsured motorist coverage cover an uninsured driver of the car in a single car accident?

No. Uninsured motorist coverage protects the owner of the vehicle which is damaged due to the actions of an uninsured driver of another vehicle (or damage caused by a hit-and-run driver). I think what you are asking is known as a 'permissive' driver - someone who was driving another person's vehicle with the owner's permission, but who is not actually named on the policy. The answer to this is 'probably' depending on the insurance company and the provisions of the policy itself, but if provided for would cover them like they were a named insured on the policy.


Difference between uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist coverage?

This is actually ONE coverage, serving two different purposes. You will often see this expressed on a declarations page as UM/UIM. Uninsured motorist coverage is self explanatory. YOUR uninsured motorist coverage on YOUR policy will pay for damages to your insured automobile when an 'at fault' vehicle does not have any insurance coverage to pay for your damages. UIM is UnderInsured Motorist coverage and would be available when the damages to -your vehicle exceed the amount of coverage in effect on the at fault party's liability coverage. This is an important coverage to have; very few state minimum liability limits are adequate anymore to offer full protection to owners. Rising auto costs and auto parts costs, plus the lower threshold to declare a total loss make higher UIM limits a sound decision.

Can the uninsured motorist coverage in a hit and run accident in California cover the victim?

Yes it can, although it might be subject to your deductible depending on the type of optional coverage you have.

It is also relatively cheap compared to other optional coverages!

Does uninsured motor vehicle - pd cover damages to your car?

If you have automobile insurance with an uninsured motorist property damage endorsement it covers damage to your car caused by an uninsured motorist. If you have collision coverage the endorsement will pay your deductible. If you don't have collision coverage the endorsement will pay for damages up to a set amount, typically $3500. Before it will pay it has to be determined that the other party was at fault and that they have no insurance. In the case of a hit and run driver it wouldn't pay because it would not be possible to determine whether or not they had insurance.
