You need more uninsured motorist coverage | Richmond Virginia car accident lawyer

I just heard a story on NPR this morning about the growing number of uninsured drivers in America. I highly recommend that you examine your own insurance policy and make sure you have enough uninsured motorist coverage. It might keep you from going bankrupt if you get put in the hospital from an accident caused by somebody driving without insurance.

I increased my uninsured motorist coverage a few months ago and was surprised at how cheap it is. For around $9 a month I increased the coverage immensely. I now feel that if anyone in my family gets in a bad car accident or truck wreck there will be enough money to cover even the worst hospital bills.

Insurance companies don’t like you to have increased uninsured motorist coverage because it means more money they have to pay out and that cuts into their profit margin.

Another thing to remember is that your uninsured motorist coverage also covers you if the driver that hits you doesn’t have enough insurance to cover your hospital bills. In this case it is sometimes called underinsured motorist coverage.

You can read more about this and other topics in my Richmond Virginia car accident lawyer book.
