Uninsured Motor Vehicle Coverage

Uninsured motor vehicle insurance, or uninsured motorist insurance, helps pay your medical expenses, lost wages and related damages if you're in an accident caused by a driver who doesn't have liability insurance.

How It Works

Motorists are legally required to have liability insurance in nearly every state in the U.S. But that doesn't stop some people from driving without it. And if you're in an accident caused by an uninsured motorist, they may not have the money to help pay your damages.

If you have uninsured motorist insurance and are in an accident with a motorist who's at fault and has no insurance, it's your own insurance company that'll help pay for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Should You Have Uninsured Motor Vehicle Coverage?

If you or someone in your family is hurt in an auto accident, can you afford to pay for medical care, or be without an income during recovery?

Uninsured motorist coverage may protect you from these potential hardships.
