Because of the sheer number of drivers on the road, it is guaranteed that there are drivers who aren’t carrying insurance or who are carrying insufficient insurance.
A New York driver is required to carry:
- Bodily injury and property damage liability insurance with minimum coverage of:
- $25,000 bodily injury coverage per person
- $50,000 bodily injury coverage per accident
- $10,000 property damage coverage per accident
2. Personal injury protection (PIP), sometimes called no-fault coverage, of at least $50,000 and
3. Uninsured motorist bodily injury (with the same minimums as bodily injury liability)
Uninsured motorist coverage is insurance that pays for bodily injury resulting from an accident with a driver who is responsible for injury but who has no liability coverage. In New York, under-insured and uninsured motorist coverage is actually common but many people do not know they have it on their policy.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident with an uninsured or under-insured driver, it is critical to understand your rights and options. We are here to help.
