Q: What is the difference between underinsured motorist coverage and underinsured motorist property damage?
Apr 30, 2021

Are these two types of coverage important? Do they cover the same things or are they different?

Underinsured motorist coverage is a type of car insurance that covers bodily injury if you or your passengers are hurt by a driver with low liability limits. Should you get injured and your medical bills exceed the other driver’s insurance liability limits, your own underinsured motorist coverage can help pay for your expenses.

The same applies to underinsured motorist property damage. If your vehicle’s damage exceeds the other driver’s limits, your coverage can kick in to help cover the repairs.

You may often see underinsured motorist coverage combined with uninsured motorist coverage. This means that you would also be protected from someone who does not have any insurance at all.

Underinsured motorist bodily injury and property damage coverage is important as it is another way to protect yourself, your passengers, and your vehicle. Being properly insured is the easiest way to protect yourself on the road. “

This app is truly amazing and I recommend it to everyone. They were able to save me over $100/yr on car insurance, and I hardly had to do a thing. They got finalized quotes for me in minutes, and I didn't have to call anyone. They also canceled my old policy, and got me on to my new one for me!
