When you buy your next car insurance policy, you better make sure you have enough underinsured motorist insurance. If you are ever injured in a car accident case, and the other driver does not have enough insurance to compensate you for your harms and losses, your only practical way to receive compensation is through your underinsured motorist coverage. Unfortunately, many drivers drive without adequate insurance. The law requires people to carry car insurance in order to drive a car legally, but the law permits only $20,000.00 worth of insurance in Connecticut. This number is low compared to other New England states. Therefore, if you are in a car accident in Groton, Connecticut, and the other driver has only $20,000.00 in coverage, and if your losses exceed that amount then you must rely upon your own underinsured motorist coverage. That insurance is insurance that protects you, so please make sure you purchase enough of it.
