Due to the economic problems that all Americans are facing, it is likely that there will be increasing numbers of drivers on our highways who are uninsured. Those who do have liability insurance on their vehicles should get with their insurance agent at an early date and make sure that they are adequately protected in the event of an accident with an uninsured driver. All insured drivers should do the following:
• Make sure that you are covered with uninsured motorist coverage. In Alabama, that coverage is mandatory unless the policyholder specifically requests that it be deleted from coverage.
• Get as much uninsured motorist coverage as you can.
• Check your policy’s language to make sure uninsured motorist coverage includes “under-insured” motorist coverage. This protects you under your uninsured motorist policy if the wrongdoer in a vehicle accident doesn’t have enough liability insurance to cover the amount of injuries and damages you or occupants of your insured vehicle suffer.
Hopefully, none of our readers will have a need for using their uninsured coverage. But just in case such coverage is needed, make sure you are adequately and fully covered.
