For a few weeks, we have been sharing images that contain lots of blue dots. Each of these dots represent an accident that has occurred within a part of our state of Connecticut. Truth be told, the sheer number of blue dots made it impossible to share all of the accidents that are regularly happening.
An unfortunate coincidence occurred while we were starting this blog post – another horrible accident happened just one block over from our office.
According to an article on Fox61: “Pedestrian deaths are on the rise in Connecticut; the state is seeing about 60 pedestrian deaths a year and is on track to exceed that number this year, according to Watch for Me CT, a statewide campaign aimed at reducing roadway injuries and deaths.”
How can you control your safety?
Beyond having the basic CT Standard UM insurance coverage, make sure that you have the broader CT Conversion Underinsured Motorist Coverage on your policy. Underinsured motorist conversion coverage which locks in your limit from being reduced or offset by the other party’s limit, provides reimbursement in case you are injured by a driver who has the same or less than your limit.
Let’s just say that your damages exceed the at-fault driver’s insurance… your underinsured motorist conversion coverage will be available for damages not paid!!
