Uninsured motorist claim –The claim you file with your own insurance company when you collide with another vehicle and the other driver does not have insurance coverage. Uninsured motorist clauses in insurance contracts can also cover collisions with hit-and-run drivers and instances where the other driver’s insurer denies that their policy covers the loss. In Oregon it is mandatory for every driver to carry uninsured motorist coverage as part of their car insurance policy.

Underinsured motorist claim – The claim you file with your own insurance company when the other vehicle’s policy limit is inadequate to pay for all of your damages.
