Uninsured Motorist Claim & Auto Insurance Requirements in Oregon
Oregon law dictates that every licensed driver must have uninsured motorist coverage (UM) for accidents that occur when the negligent driver is not insured. In the event of an accident when another driver is without liability insurance, this UM coverage, which is a part of your insurance policy, will pay for the injuries and property damage caused by the auto accident. Liability insurance is insurance coverage that helps pay for another persons’ bodily injury if you cause a car accident.
