We wrote recently about the devastating impact of not having sufficient automobile insurance and how critical that becomes when you’re involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. These days it comes down to the idea of buying sufficient insurance to cover yourself in the event the person hitting you doesn’t carry enough or any insurance.  By doing this you accept that if you are in an accident the other driver will be uninsured.  In California the Insurance Resource Council estimates there are more than 4 million drivers without insurance.  Better covered than sorry!

With that said what coverage limits should you have in place to adequately cover yourself against an uninsured/underinsured driver?  In reality you should purchase as much insurance as you can up to a point.  A minimum level of coverage of $100,000/$300,000 for Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist is reasonable… buy more if you can afford it.  Having medical payments coverage is extremely affordable and allows you to direct your care and enlist the services of Chiropractors and other allied health care professionals of your choice.  Many insurance agents will steer you away from medical payments coverage by telling you that you already have health insurance and based on our experience this is almost always bad advice.

Another aspect of insurance that often goes unexplored is listing all licensed drivers in your home on your policy.  Some insurance companies will not cover drivers that live in your home if they aren’t listed on the policy.  The last and possibly most important thing you should do is actually read and understand your policy.  Your agent wants to sell you insurance and it’s up to you to know what you’re actually buying and then be certain that it’s want you want and need.

Patriot’s Day is both a celebration and remembrance of the Revolutionary War Battles of Lexington and Concord in 1776.  As a child growing up in New England I attended many Patriot’s Day celebrations.  In States that are classified as Commonwealths (Massachusetts, Kentucky, Virginia & Pennsylvania) Patriot’s Day is a State holiday.  These battles were critical in the formation and future of this great nation.

Patriots Day in Boston starts with the running of the Marathon in the morning.   There are events held throughout the day and the day ends with a Boston Red Sox game.  This year the Sox play the 4th game in a series against the Orioles.  This is a day for the community and we celebrate it as such.  This also marks the second anniversary of 2 men who tried to change that day and those celebrations.

On April 15, 2013 there were 2 pressure cooker bombs planted near the finish line of the Marathon.  These bombs killed 3 people and injured 264 other innocent people.  Many of those injuries were quite severe.  The fate of the 2 men who planned and executed this act has for the most part been decided.  One of the men was killed in a hail of gunfire from the Police and the other man was tried and found guilty on 30 charges related to the bombing.  The penalty phase of his trial starts Tuesday.

The goal of these men was to stop a long held tradition in Boston and create a sense of fear in America.  From what I can tell they failed in both areas.  There are a record number of runners in the 2015 Marathon, The Red Sox are sold out and the celebrations continue to grow.  From my point of view this is what it means to be an American and a Bostonian.
