  5. Call Your Insurance Agent Today And Get UIM/UM Insurance Coverage.  If you are in a car accident this weekend, you will be even more devastated unless you get a significant Underinsured/Uninsured Insurance policy for you and your family.  They are very reasonable and inexpensive.  This makes sure you are covered even if the driver who hits you does not have insurance for your personal injury case or has minimum coverage for your personal injury case.  Do not gamble with your own financial well-being.
