When you are injured by a driver with too little insurance or no insurance at all, or if a driver hits you and leaves the scene, you would make a claim for Uninsured Motorist Coverage against your own insurance company. This should not make your payment go up as long as you were not partially at fault for the accident.
Most states, including the state of Missouri, require drivers to carry Uninsured Motorist Coverage, or UM Coverage.
