This comment will distinguish the uninsured/underinsured motorist problem and coverages, and will outline the 1980 amendment to Washington's uninsured motorist statute. The comment will then discuss some areas of the law likely to cause controversy and suggest resolutions to these issues. The proposed resolutions follow the approach taken by the legislature, balancing the conflicting interests of insureds and insurers.
