Everyday we get in our cars to go to work, grocery stores, and just about everywhere. While we drive safely and try not to think about it, the fact remains that thousands of auto accidents occur in the US every day. While suffering physical injuries and property damage is painful enough, you can be left holding the bag if you are hit by an uninsured driver. According to the <atarget=”_blank” href=”https://www.iii.org/fact-statistic/facts-statistics-uninsured-motorists”>Insurance Information Institute, over 12% of motorists in Ohio drive uninsured. Protect yourself by adding uninsured and underinsured motorists provisions to your auto policy. An uninsured motorist policy will step in and pay your claim in the event you are injured by an uninsured driver. While an adequate underinsured motorist policy will kick in if you are injured by an insured driver who doesn’t have enough coverage. Simply put, a small addition to your policy will provide peace of mind and can be a lifesaver if you end up needing it.
As always, if you are injured in an auto accident, ensure your rights are protected! Call us at M&J 513-723-1600 or send us an email below.
