4 Facts of UM/UIM Coverage Helpful to San Diego, California Car Accident Claims
- In California, insurance providers are required to include uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage in your policy. They may only exclude this coverage if you specifically decline it in writing.
- California insurance providers are only required to provide UM/UIM coverage in the amount of your policy liability coverage. If you have more than $30,000/$60,000 coverage, insurers aren't required to exceed that amount.
- Your UM/UIM coverage will cover more than just yourself. It will cover you and all of the members of your house, including children of yours who don't live with you, and college kids that are away. It also covers any passengers riding in your car at the time of the accident or licensed drivers who are driving your car with your permission.
- UM/UIM coverage applies even when you're not in a car. It applies whether you're driving, walking, bicycling, or simply standing when you're injured by an uninsured motorist.
