You Are Injured By An Uninsured Driver

If you or your employee are in a collision with an uninsured driver and sustain serious injuries, your livelihood could be at risk.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

This coverage helps pay for your medical bills if you are injured in an accident that is caused by a driver with no insurance. Or, you may have the protection you need, depending on your policy's bodily injury limit. (Coverage restrictions apply in some states, so be sure to talk to your agent.)

You Owe Money On A Damaged Vehicle

If you still owe money on a loan or lease, you could be responsible for the cost of replacing the vehicle after an accident.

Lease And Loan Gap Coverage

This helps you pay off your car loan if your vehicle is totaled or stolen and the amount you owe is more than the car's depreciated value. This coverage comes standard in an Allstate Business Auto Insurance policy.
