Ohio law requires that all drivers carry liability insurance, but repeatedly negligent drivers are often uninsured, having no auto insurance at all. Being injured by an uninsured motorist can be frustrating and terrifying. Not only did someone cause your injuries but they don’t have any way to pay for them.

Uninsured motorist (UM) coverage in your auto insurance policy may apply to pay for your damages when your injured by a driver without auto insurance.

Underinsured Motorist Coverage

The minimum amount of liability insurance coverage required for every Ohio driver is $25,000 per person for bodily injury and $50,000 per accident for bodily injury. Even if a negligent driver has more than these minimum state liability limits, sometimes their insurance policy limits are simply insufficient to pay for an injury victim’s damages. Frequently, injury victims don’t realize that they may have the auto insurance coverage they need to pay for their excess damages.

Underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage may apply to pay for your damages when the driver responsible for your injuries does not have sufficient coverage to fully compensate you.
