New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) – Welcome to The Law Down where Personal Injury Attorney Brooke Goff shares her insight on important legal issues. Today’s topic is Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage. What is it, and do we need it?
In this interview, Attorney Goff explains the differences between these two types of motorist coverage and gives you some examples of why you should make sure that you’re covered sufficiently. She notes that most people in Connecticut just pay for this insurance, yet they have no idea what it’s really all about.
Attorney Goff says, “Underinsured motorist coverage means somebody hit you without enough insurance and then your insurance can step into the shoes of that person and cover any differential between what you have and what they have.” She continues, “Uninsured motorist coverage is obvious, right? Somebody hit you without insurance and then your insurance company steps into their shoes and covers you for whatever limit you have.”
Other important points Attorney Goff shares with our viewers include the
- Why are insurance coverage limits so important?
- You need to prioritize protecting yourself from other people – not
the other way around.
- How do I decide how much underinsured/uninsured coverage to get?
- If someone hits me and they only have the state’s minimum amount of
coverage, will my insurance make up the difference automatically?
- Why is investing in this underinsured/uninsured coverage worth spending
