Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claims: An Added Layer Of Complexity

West Virginia law requires drivers to carry insurance — including uninsured motorist coverage. This type of coverage comes into play when you are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. Since that driver doesn't have a policy, you will have to turn to your own policy for coverage of accident-related expenses, including medical bills, property damage and lost wages.

What if the other driver does have insurance, but it's not enough to cover all the losses? In these situations, you may have coverage if you purchased an underinsured motorist policy.

For both of these scenarios, your ability to recover compensation will depend on your policy limits.
