Uninsured Motorist Insurance coverage is available to you as an insured while operating another motor vehicle and you sustain bodily injuries
Q. I was involved in an auto accident several months ago. Despite being injured I did not file a claim against the other driver. My doctor now tells me that my injury is significant and likely to be permanent in nature. Can I still file a claim?.
A. Yes. In most instances you have up to two years from the date of an accident to file a legal claim for recovery of any damages and injuries from the responsible party
Q. My wife and I own four cars. We have insurance on all of the cars. We have a baby sitter that occasionally drives one of the cars. Should we list her as a driver.
A. Yes. Generally any individual who drives a vehicle which you own and is generally available for their regular use should be listed so that they are covered by your insurance. Most policies exclude from coverage individuals who drive your car on a regular basis.
