It is very important to have uninsured motorist coverage as part of your own automobile insurance policy. If you do have uninsured motorist coverage, did you know...?

  1. Even if you are traveling outside the State of Florida and have left your own car at home, if you are injured in a car accident with an uninsured motorist, you may be eligible for uninsured motorist insurance benefits.

  2. Even if you are a passenger in someone else's car and are injured in a car accident with an uninsured motorist, you may be eligible for uninsured motorist insurance benefits.

  3. Even if you are not in your car at the time that you are injured by an uninsured motorist (for example, you are crossing the street and are knocked down and injured by a hit-and-run driver), you may be eligible for uninsured motorist insurance benefits.

  4. Even if you are injured when you are not in your car and you are not hit by the actual vehicle being driven by the uninsured motorist (for example, you are walking along the sidewalk and a vehicle hits an object in the road, causing it to ricochet into you and injure you), you may be eligible for uninsured motorist insurance benefits.

  5. Even if you are not the person injured by an uninsured motorist (for example, your child is away at college and is injured by a hit-and-run driver), you may be eligible to collect uninsured motorist insurance benefits on your child's behalf.

As you can see, uninsured motorist coverage can be very beneficial to you if you or a relative living in your home are unfortunately injured in any one of the above scenarios. Of course, the above scenarios are only a few examples; there could be any number of accidents where you may be eligible for uninsured motorist insurance benefits. If you do not already have uninsured motorist coverage as part of your automobile insurance policy, we strongly recommend that you call your insurance company today to discuss adding this type of coverage to your policy.
