Insurance Question from Brown Deer, WI

Asked on 01/13/2016

If in a car accident and both party have uninsured motor do it combine to cover the injury person losses NULL

Answer given on January 13, 2016

If you were in an auto accident, the person who caused the accident would be responsible for repairs to the other car and if there were injuries, they would also be responsible for the injuries.If the liability limits for the responsible driver are not enough to cover the damages and injuries, then that insurance company will pay the limits of the policy. At that time, you can file a claim under your policy for the additional cost of injuries through your medical payments coverage, if you have that coverage, or you can file under the uninsured/underinsured coverage of your policy. If you had a passenger and your limits are not enough, then they can go to their insurance company for further coverage for injuries. However you cannot file a claim if the injuries and damages are fully covered by the responsible driver.
