Q How do I protect myself from some other guy who is a careless driver who also has only a little bit of insurance?
The only way to protect yourself from underinsured drivers is to have underinsured motorist benefits on your policy, and to make sure you have enough insurance. All car insurance policies in Connecticut require underinsured motorist coverage as part of the policy. We see many unfortunate instances where our clients are seriously injured in car accidents, and they did not carry enough underinsured motorist coverage to protect themselves. We recommend that you have underinsured motorist coverage of six times your annual salary.
