Supplemental Underinsured Motorist Coverage
In New York, the minimum required car liability bodily injury coverage is $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident. But what happens when the cost of damages and injuries exceeds the amount covered for bodily injury by the at-fault party’s insurance?
Supplemental underinsured motorist coverage (SUM) insurance may be available to provide additional bodily injury coverage for injured victims of motor vehicle accidents when the responsible party does not have enough insurance.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage
It’s against the law for a vehicle to be without car insurance, yet some drivers in New York still drive without it. Uninsured motorist insurance (UM) is designed to cover an accident victim’s personal injuries when the at-fault party has no insurance.
