When stories like this hit the news we are reminded again of the importance of having underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage on your car insurance policy. Although we don't know if there is adequate insurance on the suv that caused the accident, it's not hard to imagine that if a guy runs on foot from the scene of an accident he probably doesn't have much if any insurance. Who pays then? You do! So protect yourself and your family by purchasing as much UIM car insurance as possible. It does cost much, but can save you from big financial problems if your injured in a Washington hit-and-run accident like this one.
