How to Protect Yourself from Uninsured Drivers
In this blog post, we are going to talk about How to Protect Yourself from Uninsured Drivers.
Car Accidents can be very costly, and no one enjoys being unprepared and under protected. It is rare, but some motorists on the road either have no insurance or are underinsured.
According to the Insurance Research Council, there are about 14 percent of drivers that are uninsured. Some states can even claim around 20 percent of uninsured drivers. If you are involved in an Auto Accident with an Uninsured or underinsured driver, you could be left with thousands of dollars in repair costs and medical expenses.
I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
WHAT CAN I DO?
Being a responsible driver is crucial to your safety and the safety of others out on the road. If you want to be safe, you’ll need to buy uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Here are some facts about this type of insurance:
- Cost: on average, this costs about 6-9 percent of your total policy premium
- Requirements: You need to meet your state’s minimum required limit of liability coverage (Learn More).
- Location: it is mandatory in all states as well as the District of Columbia except for New Hampshire
- Injury Coverage: bodily injury is covered under this policy for you and will sometimes include passengers or family members who are driving during the crash
- Other Coverage: sometimes your car’s damage will be covered under this policy
