Unexpected accidents such as this one highlight the need to purchase as much insurance as one can afford. An Underinsured Motorist (“UIM”) insurance policy guards against situations where an at-fault driver has inadequate insurance coverage. A Personal Injury Protection (“PIP”) insurance policy guarantees that an injured party receives compensation for medical bills, lost compensation and loss of essential services. Any driver who does not carry both policies places himself or herself at risk in case of an accident.
