The Importance of Underinsurance Coverage

Pennsylvania requires that all drivers carry liability insurance, but the mandatory minimum coverage is extremely low ($15,000/30,000). Our accident lawyers have seen the financial losses and harm suffered by innocent victims when a negligent person does not have adequate insurance to pay for the damages he or she has caused. A question that our motor vehicle accident lawyers are often asked is how can you protect yourself and your family from this financial loss? The answer is simple: Make sure that your own motor vehicle insurance policy provides Underinsurance Coverage. This is protection for you and your family so contact your insurance company or agent to be sure that your policy provides this protection.
