Your Questions, Answered: UIM / UM Claims

At Walter Clark Legal Group, we work with clients on a daily basis who bring a variety of important questions to us. In many situations, the answers to these questions could have a significant financial impact on their own well-being. With that in mind, we’ve started a new series of blog posts in which we will answer some of the most popular questions we are asked.


Does My Automobile Insurance Premium Go Up If I Open A UIM / UM Claim With My Insurance?


If you’re not the cause of the accident, simply claiming compensation for damage caused by another is your right under the policy.  In order to qualify though, be sure to report the accident to law enforcement so you can provide that report to the insurance carrier. This rule helps prevent fraud.

Terms to Remember:

UIM: Under-insured motorist

UM: Uninsured motorist
