Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is for accidents that are caused by a driver who does not have auto liability insurance or whose premium does not fully cover the damages. The state of California requires the provision of UM coverage for auto liability policies, although it can be voluntarily declined in writing.
Types of UM/UIM coverage available in California include:
- Uninsured motorist bodily injury
- Uninsured motorist property damage
- Underinsured motorist

& Confidential Consultation
To collect from an UM/UIM policy, you must have been struck by a vehicle. However, you do not need to be in a vehicle. You could be outside the car looking under the hood or pumping gas. UM/UIM coverage is also available for pedestrians who were walking, bicycling, skateboarding, or even sitting on a bench.
The key to recovering compensation from an UM/UIM policy is establishing that the liable party either has no insurance or does not have sufficient insurance to cover the costs of your injuries.
