Injured In An Auto Accident? Here’s What You Should Know About Uninsured Motorist Insurance Coverage.
All drivers in California are required to bear financial responsibility if they are in an auto accident that injures another.
Most people fulfill this obligation by carrying proper car insurance. However, a great number of motorists ignore the requirement far too often. In these situations, drivers can protect themselves by purchasing what is known as uninsured motorist coverage.
By purchasing uninsured motorist coverage, if you are in an accident (whether as a driver, pedestrian, motorcyclist or bicyclist) with an at-fault driver who does not have the proper insurance to pay for your expenses, then your own policy would pay for the damage.
What If I Do Not Have Uninsured Auto Coverage?
If you are involved in an accident with an at-fault driver and you do not have uninsured coverage on your own policy, you cannot receive compensation from your insurance company — but you can still recover damages in a civil suit against the responsible party.
