In this session we will discuss the most common types of automobile insurance coverages and take an in depth look at the requirements of Missouri law related to those. We will also discuss methods of effectively analyzing the coverage provided by the language of the policy and understanding the interplay of that language with Missouri statutes governing the coverage.
Other focus points of the program will include:
The main parts of an automobile insurance policy
An organized and effective way to read every insurance policy
A strategy for handling cases involving accidental injuries
Auto liability insurance policy language and its interplay with RSMo 303.190 - the central law governing that coverage in Missouri (commonly called the “Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law” or “MVFRL”)
Uninsured Motorist (“UM”) policy language and its interplay with RSMo 379.203 – the law governing that coverage in Missouri
Underinsured Motorist (“UIM”) policy language and its interplay with RSMo 379.204 – the law governing that coverage in Missouri
