Underinsured Insurance Coverage

Published: 9/16/2015

Care and experience is needed in handling Underinsured Motorist insurance. This is a type of Automobile insurance coverage one buys to protect one’s self where the negligent party has a small policy but causes a great deal of harm. These coverages vary policy by policy and the coverage must be consulted. However, one general theme that tends to be found in these coverages is that the Underinsured Motorist carrier must give written permission before any recovery can be had from the wrongdoer. Violation of this provision voids the Underinsured Motorist coverage and leaves the victim without adequate compensation. Only a small percentage of practicing attorneys are familiar with this policy requirement which is a trap for the uninformed.
