Why Uninsured Motorist Coverage is so Important to a Cyclist?

To protect yourself and your family from terrible financial loss if you are seriously injured in a bicycle accident, you should get as much uninsured motorist coverage as you can afford. Your own uninsured motorist coverage will pay for your medical costs, rehabilitation, and lost wages if you are ever hurt due to the negligence of an uninsured or under-insured driver (“under-insured” means their policy will pay too low an amount to cover all your losses).

Uninsured motorist coverage is part of every auto insurance policy, but the amount can be higher or lower than your coverage for other types of accidents. Ask your agent about increasing the amount of just the uninsured motorist coverage, which can be very affordable. Also, ask your agent about the cost of an umbrella insurance policy, another often-affordable way to insure against any big losses that run more than those covered in your uninsured motorist policy.
