The uninsured motorist law states that you can make a claim under your own insurance policy if the driver who caused your accident doesn't have insurance. Underinsured motorist coverage is a subset of uninsured motorist coverage. While you can make a claim for coverage, the law includes many specifics and reservations. It's best to hire an attorney to improve your chances of getting covered.
