South Carolina's Laws on Uninsured Motorist Coverage

In South Carolina, motorists are required to carry certain limits on uninsured motorist coverage (UM) in their own insurance policy. Thus, if you are a South Carolina motorist and you possess car insurance, you have a legal claim against your own insurance company if the driver who was legally responsible for the collision had no auto insurance coverage. While a deductible may apply, you may be reimbursed for the deductible if the insurance provider can collect it from the uninsured motorist.

Uninsured motorist coverage can kick in when:

You are injured in a hit and run accident and the driver has fled the scene

The other driver's insurance is not enough to cover your property damage and bodily injury

The other driver does not have insurance at all

Since you are seeking benefits from your own insurance company, despite not being at fault for the accident, your insurance adjuster owes you a duty to handle your claim for UM benefits in a fair manner. However, insurers are sometimes reluctant to pay the full amount of your entitled benefits.
