Uninsured/Underinsured Driver Protection

Underinsured driver protection covers you are in an accident with a driver who does not have adequate liability insurance.

If you are involved in a collision with an uninsured driver or a driver without adequate liability protection, underinsured driver protection will compensate you for bodily injury and property damage costs. Your insurance will make a claim against the other driver up to the maximum amount of their insurance coverage, and then your insurance will kick in. 

Uninsured/Underinsured Driver Protection essentially takes the place of liability insurance, if the other driver can not cover your medical or property damage expenses. If you are covered, you won’t be left out of pocket by the uninsured driver and your insurer will pick up the slack. Don’t risk financial ruin because another driver is not responsible on the road.

Is Uninsured Drivers Coverage Mandatory?

Despite the fact that auto insurance is mandatory, there are many reasons why someone might get in a car without insurance. Their auto insurance may have expired without them knowing, they might not think they will be involved in an accident, or they may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Whatever the reason, this choice can result in devastating financial consequences for the responsible driver involved in an accident. 

In Ontario, uninsured motorist coverage is mandatory. However, some drivers might want to add additional coverage to their uninsured drivers coverage above the minimum required amount. Spending a little more now can save you big in the long term.  

Our team of insurance experts will review your unique situation, compare different coverage plans, and help find you appropriate car insurance so you will be covered for everything from hospital bills to repairs, if you have been involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist.

The Jeffery & Spence team is wonderful. They have insured my assets for over 4 years. When I switched over from my old provider they made it easy. They were honest and reliable. I started simply with a call out for car insurance. They were able to take a look at 5+ companies and make sure I had the proper coverage and at a great price. (They beat my old provider by $300). Slowly and surely as other asset insurance policies were coming to an end (home, business, additional vehicles) it only made sense to call over and get a quote. Additionally there is customer service like no other. I call in frequently for updates and questions and whether it’s the front desk or managers I have never felt like I was asking a stupid question. Jeffery & Spence is awesome and you owe it to yourself to just give them a call....even if your not from Guelph!read more

So over the moon happy with these guys. Specifically Dave. I was a first timer today, extremely nervous about taking another step toward “audulting” by getting my own auto insurance. And when I say nervous, I mean NERVOUS. Dave was MORE than helpful. His personality put me at ease, and the way he explained things made me go from feeling anxious to comfortable. Dave did more than help me get my own insurance. Dave made me feel like it was just a normal conversation between people. Where as other conversations have gone with other companies, I felt like a stupid kid in their 20s that didn’t know what they were doing. It’s comforting to know that now, in the future, when I need home insurance, etc. I know who to call. Thanks a million Dave.read more
