The Importance of UM Coverage

In Georgia, uninsured motorist (UM) coverage can pay for the following:

  • Property damage: Covers any damage to your vehicle
  • Bodily injury: Covers any medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering for you and your passengers

UM coverage is extremely important not only to protect you in the event of an accident with an uninsured driver, but also to protect you in the following scenarios:

  • The other driver does not have enough insurance. UM coverage can cover you in the event that you are in an accident with an underinsured driver (a driver without enough insurance to cover the full value of your losses.) After you have received compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company, your own UM coverage will kick in to cover the rest.
  • You are a passenger in an accident. If you are a passenger in a vehicle that is struck by an uninsured driver, you can claim compensation from your own insurance company if you have UM coverage.
  • You are involved in a pedestrian accident. If you are struck by a car as a pedestrian, you can file a claim for compensation if you have UM coverage even though you weren’t driving your car at the time of the accident.
  • You are involved in a hit and run. If you are involved in a hit and run accident and the at-fault driver is nowhere to be found, you can still obtain compensation through your UM policy instead of being forced to pay for your losses from your own pocket.

Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve

A car accident can be a serious – and expensive – disruption to your life. You may have injuries and mounting medical bills with no way to pay for them, especially if your injury is severe enough to keep you from being able to work. In times like these, it is important to have someone on your side to minimize your stress, guide you through the legal process, and help you get the full and fair compensation you deserve in a timely manner. You can trust Pratt Clay to be the firm you can count on in your time of need.

Due to the statute of limitations, you must act quickly.
