Car accidents can happen suddenly and leave you facing hefty medical bills and repair
expenses. You can usually trust the other driver’s insurance to
help you with your expenses, but when the other driver is uninsured or
does not have enough insurance, you may be left to cover the bills yourself.
For this very important reason, uninsured motorist coverage is available
Many Drivers Don’t Have Insurance
Despite the fact that insurance coverage is necessary to operate a vehicle,
many drivers do not have insurance. If you are hit by one of these drivers,
you will have no way to recover compensation, unless you have uninsured
motorist coverage. This coverage can act like another driver’s insurance
and pay for your claim, if the at-fault driver does not have insurance,
does not have enough insurance, or leaves the scene before you can get
Car Accidents Can Be Costly
Rather than risk expensive repairs and medical bills that you must pay
for alone, add uninsured motorist coverage to your auto insurance policy.
Even minor accidents can become expensive very quickly, and you shouldn’t
be responsible for paying for an accident you were not at fault for.
Coverage Isn’t Expensive
Many uninsured motorist policies are relatively inexpensive, especially
when you consider the value they can have if you are hit by an uninsured
motorist or are the victim of a hit-and-run accident. These policies can
help you with medical bills, lost wages, and the cost of fixing or replacing
your vehicle. They may even cover your emotional and physical pain and
suffering that results from the accident.
Uninsured motorists are a hazard to other drivers, and you should still
be able to claim compensation after an accident with an uninsured driver.
