Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Accidents in Seattle, WA
All drivers in Washington are required by law to carry liability insurance. Unfortunately, people do not always comply with the law. For this reason, many drivers carry uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. This allows them to file claims with their own insurance company should they be in an accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist.
What’s the difference between an uninsured motorist and an uninsured motorist?
An uninsured motorist policy gives drivers a source of compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and other expenses if they are injured by someone who carries no insurance. Underinsured motorist coverage provides for benefits if the injured driver’s medical expenses and other damages exceed the policy limits of the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage.
