The Importance of Having Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Every driver in the state of California is required by law to carry auto liability insurance. The minimum liability insurance for a passenger vehicle is $15,000 for injury or death of a single individual, $30,000 for injury or death of multiple individuals, and $5,000 for property damage. Comprehensive coverage, collision coverage, uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, rental car coverage, and various other types of insurance coverage are also available.

Individuals who do not meet the minimum insurance requirements are at risk of having their driving privileges suspended or revoked. Citations and fines will be issued to those who are found to be driving without the proper levels of insurance coverage. Despite the laws in place to prevent it, estimates from the state’s Department of Insurance show that close to 16.1% of all current drivers are driving without insurance.

Statistics like these may leave you wondering how you can recover compensation if you are injured in an accident caused by an uninsured driver. One way to protect yourself is to have uninsured motorist coverage on your own policy. This coverage will enable you to recover compensation for bodily injuries sustained by either you or your passengers in an uninsured motorist accident.

Without this insurance you will be left liable for the expenses relating to your injuries and repairs. Filing a lawsuit may be another option if you were hit by an uninsured motorist; however, once you file a lawsuit you could be prohibited from filing a claim with your own insurance company.
