What Compensation Is Available After An East Amherst Collision?

New York State law requires vehicle owners to be covered with a minimum $50,000 No-Fault policy, to protect the insured after an accident, regardless of fault. If the collision was not your fault and you sustained serious injuries, the at-fault driver’s Bodily Injury (BI) insurance will ideally cover your future medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. If the policy is inadequate, there may be additional options.

Vehicle owners can choose to purchase additional coverage to protect the insured and their families. This insurance is called Supplemental Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (SUM/UM) insurance. SUM/UM coverage serves as an extra safety net to protect the insured. SUM/UM insurance is used if the insured is in an accident, and the other party(ies) involved have no insurance or insufficient coverage.

If you, or a resident relative, have SUM/UM insurance, and the at-fault driver’s bodily injury coverage is not available or is insufficient to fully cover your accident-related damages and pain and suffering, our attorneys can investigate the SUM/UM policy for additional coverage. Contact your insurance agent today to ensure that you have adequate SUM/UM coverage on your policy to protect yourself in the event of an accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver.
