How Does Underinsured Motorist Coverage Work?

Like most states, Florida requires that all drivers purchase automobile insurance. The minimum requirement for all vehicles with four or more wheels is $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) and $10,000 in property damage liability (PDL). Since a single day in the emergency room can cost upwards of $15,000, these minimums are oftentimes grossly insufficient to cover the resulting damages from a crash. To compensate for this gap in coverage, drivers are highly encouraged to purchase supplementary underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. This additional insurance covers any of your losses that may remain after your PIP coverage and the other driver’s insurance coverage have been exhausted, up to a certain limit.

UIM insurance can help pay you for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Rehabilitation costs

Unlike a collision with a completely uninsured motorist, it will usually take time to determine if the extent of your claim fits within the limits of the at-fault driver’s coverage. If the other driver only carries the state minimum liability coverage, it is highly likely that you will need to file an additional underinsured motorist claim. As soon as you learn that the other driver is underinsured, it is imperative you take action immediately to ensure you meet all relevant deadlines. An attorney from our firm can review the circumstances surrounding your crash and implement a legal strategy that ensures your rights are protected during this time.
