Atlanta Injury Attorneys, Montlick & Associates, Reviews Important Safeguards to Protect You Against Uninsured - or UnderInsured - Motorists
Uninsured Motorist coverage – also known as UNDER insured motorist coverage – is insurance that protects you if you get hit by someone with NO insurance. Uninsured Motorist Coverage also protects you if you get hit by a hit and run driver, or if you get hit by someone who HAS insurance, but whose policy is NOT ENOUGH to cover your medical treatment and other bills caused by an accident. To help educate drivers on this vital but optional auto insurance coverage, the Atlanta Injury Attorneys at Montlick & Associates created the video posted at the top of this page.
“While drivers in Georgia are required to have at least $25,000 in liability coverage, recent studies indicate that as many as 33% of all vehicles on the road may be uninsured. In some cases, drivers never purchased insurance, or the insurance company cancelled their policy because of late or missed payments. That's why we urge drivers to check their own insurance policy to make sure it includes crucial Uninsured Motorist coverage,” says Montlick & Associates CEO and Founder, David Montlick.
In addition to those drivers with no insurance, a large percentage of Georgia drivers carry only the minimum insurance required by Georgia law, ($25,000 per person and a maximum total of $50,000 per auto accident). Yet considering the high cost of healthcare and factoring in the bills for car repairs, car rentals and lost wages, even a minor accident could easily cost more than $25,000. That's why the Atlanta Injury Attorneys at Montlick & Associates strongly advise that you check your own insurance policy to make sure it includes Uninsured Motorist Coverage. If it doesn't, they recommend you talk to your insurance agent right away.
