Why should you buy additional uninsured motorist coverage? Isn’t auto insurance compulsory in Massachusetts?
It is true that auto insurance is legally required to register an automobile in Massachusetts. Unfortunately not everyone follows the law. The latest statistics show that 6% of the autos on Massachusetts roads are uninsured. That is nearly 400,000 uninsured autos!!!
Your Massachusetts auto policy provides a compulsory uninsured motorist liability limit of $20,000 per person and $40,000 per accident. This compulsory limit is better than nothing but not much. With the increasingly higher costs of medical care in this country, being injured in an auto accident can be very expensive.
For a relatively small premium you can increase your limits of uninsured motorist coverage to $100,000/$300,000, $250,000/$500,000 or even higher.
