Alabama's Uninsured Motorist Statute
In Alabama, all car insurance companies are required to include both UIM
and UM insurance coverage with every car insurance policy that they sell.
This way, every driver is covered in those unfortunate instances where
they get into an accident with someone who has no insurance or insufficient
insurance. The only reason that you would not be receive UM or UIM insurance
would be if you signed a written waiver saying that you did not want it.
UM and UIM coverage is very affordable in Alabama, which is why driver's
should also consider raising the limits of the coverage. Under the Alabama
Uninsured Motorist Statute, the minimum amount of UIM insurance is approximately
$25,000. However, in many cases drivers find that this is still not enough
to cover all of their car repair expenses, medical bills, lost wages,
rehabilitation costs and other financial damages.
So what happens when you are hit by an underinsured driver? When this situation
arises, you file an injury claim with the driver's insurance company
and they will however much they can. To pay for the remaining damages,
you file a claim with your own insurance company so that your UIM insurance
can pay the difference. You can also ask a Jasper car accident attorney
from our firm about how stacking UM and UIM insurance coverage works under
Alabama car insurance law.
