Accidents Caused by Uninsured Drivers
Every driver in Wisconsin is required by law to have car insurance. In the event of a collision, car insurance lessens the financial impact for the driver or drivers held responsible. When a driver carries the blame for a car accident, that person’s insurance covers expenses such as the other person’s medical bills and vehicle damage. When all drivers have insurance, many unfortunate situations can be avoided.
Driving without insurance is not only negligent and irresponsible, but it means that victims of accidents caused by an uninsured driver may have much greater difficulty receiving the financial compensation they deserve. Even for someone with good health insurance, an automobile accident can easily lead to thousands of dollars in medical bills. An uninsured driver has no way of compensating the other person.
Fortunately, many people are able to secure compensation for an accident with an uninsured driver through their own insurance policies. Many policies contain “uninsured / underinsured motorist” provisions, which will help cover the costs of an accident if the policy holder is involved in an accident caused by an uninsured motorist, or one with insufficient insurance.
You should not have to pay for thousands of dollars in medical bills because an irresponsible driver did not have car insurance. You may have options for recovering the compensation you deserve to help you recover from the collision.
