Uninsured Motorist insurance or sometimes referred to as underinsurance coverage, is the insurance that protects you for injuries you sustain in an accident when you are not at fault for the accident. It not only covers you when the other driver doesn’t have insurance, it also covers you for any damages which exceed the tort-feasor’s insurance. Usually, UM coverage is an additional coverage of insurance which increases the premium charged by about 8%. It is highly recommended to add to your policy because it is the insurance that actually benefits you. Collision coverage, and BI covarge, which make up about 80% of the premium, is usually used to protect third parties. UM coverage, on the other hand, is used to protect you, the insured.

Client Review

“I continue to be impressed and grateful for Maurice Arcadier’s depth of knowledge, methodical, measured and fair legal guidance. I’ve worked and conducted business across 15 countries, but here at home, he and his law firm feel just as much business partners as legal counsel. The perspective and consideration he offers remains more-than-valuable to me as I navigate each new business endeavor. I would wholeheartedly recommend Maurice to anyone !”
