Uninsured Drivers in California
If you are injured by another driver’s negligence, you turn to that driver’s insurance provider to cover the losses you incur. If that driver doesn’t carry the car insurance he or she is required to, it leaves you in a difficult position, but an experienced Beverly Hills car accident attorney can help.
Uninsured Motorists Are Out There
According to the Insurance Information Institute (III), the following uninsured motorist statistics apply:
- 12.6 percent of motorists in 2019 did not carry car insurance.
- This was after an all-time high of 13.1 percent in 2017.
- The State of California ranked in the top ten states with the highest estimated percentage of uninsured motorists in 2019 (in the tenth spot).
If the Driver Who Leaves You Injured Isn’t Covered
If the driver who causes you to be injured doesn’t carry the car insurance that he or she is required by law to carry, all hope is not lost. In California, car insurance providers are required to offer motorists uninsured and underinsured driver coverage, which is triggered if you’re injured by either an uninsured or underinsured motorist. In order to avoid purchasing this type of insurance, you would have needed to sign a waiver, which means chances are good you purchased some coverage. If so, you can seek compensation through your own policy, and a dedicated car accident attorney can help you with that.
