UM, UIM & Bad Faith Insurance in Dallas
Uninsured & Underinsured Motorist Coverage
Important insurance is provided to Texas citizens through uninsured and
underinsured motorist coverage, also known as UM or UIM insurance. This
insurance is important coverage for anyone injured in an accident with
an uninsured driver.
If the other driver involved in the accident is underinsured or uninsured,
the accident requires "first party" compensation. First party
compensation involves protection from your insurance company and requires
that your insurance company pay the amount of your claim.
Underinsured driver claims are paid up to the policy limit of the underinsured
driver and the insurance company pays the balance of the coverage that
you have agreed upon in your policy.
For example, if the underinsured driver was only able to cover $10,000
in damages, and your policy for underinsured drivers with your insurance
company covers damages up to $60,000, the insurance company is required
to pay the remaining amount of damages after the first $10,000 is collected
from the other driver's insurance.
