Legal Tips

Chances Are Your ‘Full Coverage’ Car Insurance is Leaving You Dangerously Exposed

Worst case scenario – you’re in a car accident that is NOT your fault by someone who doesn’t have car insurance OR has the minimum policy limits that don’t even come close to covering your expenses. Here are some numbers to get you thinking.

  • Minimum car insurance policy limit in Georgia is $25,000/ person $50,000/accident
  • Average cost of an overnight stay in the hospital is $13,600
  • Average cost of an ambulance ride is $2,100

This is when you think YOUR own car insurance will kick in to protect you, pay your medical bills and fix your car. Right? Well, if your car insurance policy doesn’t include Underinsured and Uninsured motorist then the answer is NO.

And here’s a scary FACT…

Georgia law does not require drivers to carry uninsured motorist coverage.

So, chances are you don’t have it if you didn’t specifically ask your insurance agent to add it to your policy. And if you do have it – then you only have the minimum $25k coverage, which is NOT enough.

The great news is that you can easily add Underinsured and Uninsured motorist to your car insurance for what can cost you pennies more a day. Then you’ll have the insurance you need if you’re in accident with someone who doesn’t have the proper coverage.

If you already have Underinsured and Uninsured motorist in your car insurance policy then you NEED to find out what your coverage limit is – Then increase it!

The minimum Underinsured and Uninsured coverage is $25k. That’s just not enough and it’s easy to push that policy limit to $250k = a much better pool to pull from if you’ve been hurt.

Call your insurance agent and have a conversation about your limits and be sure that you’ve maxed out your Underinsured and Uninsured coverage. You’ll be pleasantly surprised when you find out how little you’ll need to pay to more than triple your coverage.

We do free car insurance reviews. If you’d like our legal team to review your insurance policy to point you in the right direction. We do not sell insurance but we can arm you with the right questions to ask.
