An alarmingly high amount of drivers do not carry adequate auto insurance coverage. In fact, by some estimates, as many as nearly one-quarter of drivers do not carry the minimum amounts of car insurance coverage.
Many people assume that if they are in an accident with an uninsured motorist, they cannot recover compensation for their injuries, but this is not necessarily the case. In fact, you are likely entitled to compensation under the uninsured motorist coverage provided through your own insurance policy.
The process of obtaining money damages if you are injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist can be complex, time-consuming, and burdensome, however. Moreover, some motorists choose cheap insurance based on the car insurance rates, which can result in inadequate service or coverage in the event of an uninsured motorist accident. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you consult with a car accident lawyer who understands uninsured motorist laws and the way that auto insurance companies operate.

What Is Uninsured Motorist Insurance?
State law requires that every comprehensive auto insurance policy include uninsured motorist coverage in an amount equal to the limits for bodily injury and property damage listed in the policy, unless the policy purchaser rejects uninsured motorist coverage in writing. In other words, if your auto insurance policy provides the minimum coverage for bodily injury and property damage, it will also provide this amount of coverage for accidents with uninsured or underinsured motorists.
You may be able to recover additional amounts of money under other insurance provisions, as well, but because the process is so confusing, many injured parties do not get adequate compensation following an accident with an uninsured motorist.
