Uninsured Motorists

Nearly 14 percent of all motorists in the U.S. are uninsured, reports the Insurance Research Council (IRC). In Alabama, the number of uninsured motorists is significantly higher than the national average, as the IRC reports that about 22 percent of drivers in the state do not have auto insurance coverage. This is equivalent to more than 1 in 5 motorists in Alabama being uninsured.

Getting Compensation after Accidents Caused by Uninsured Motorists

While you can try to sue uninsured motorists to get compensation after they cause accidents, the chances are that this pursuit will be futile, as in most cases, the main reason that they don’t have insurance is that they can’t afford it; therefore, even if you win your lawsuit, you will have a difficult (if not impossible) time getting payment for your judgment.

When this is the case, accident victims can seek compensation from their own insurance companies as long as they have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. However, it’s important to point out that, even when drivers have this coverage:

  • They should not expect that their insurer will inform them about all of their options when it comes to compensation.
  • Their insurance company will likely try to under value their claim by, for instance, challenging the severity of their injuries or possibly even trying to allege that the policyholder had some role in causing the accident.
  • They may have to challenge insurers to get the payouts they deserve for their medical bills, car repair bills and other expenses.
