Hit by an uninsured driver - What can I do?

uninsured-driver-770x389.jpgEarlier this week I posted about being hit by a Canadian driver on Washington roads. While being hit by a foreign national can be inconvenient, at least you can be pretty certain that a Canadian driver has auto insurance, and probably pretty good coverage too. Sadly, the same can't be said for U.S. drivers. Although Washington law requires that all drivers carry at least $25,000 in liability insurance, nearly twenty percent of Washington drivers have no insurance at all. So if you get injured in a crash caused by an uninsured driver in Washington, what can you do?

Washington Auto Insurance Coverage - Part 2 - Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UM/UIM)

uninsured-motorist.jpgDo you know what your auto insurance coverage is? Do you know how much your limits are? If you do, you're the exception. When I speak to groups and ask this question, usually less than 10 percent of the people raise their hands. The first step in optimizing your insurance coverage is to know what you already have.

Increase your uninsured motorist coverage. Please!

She had been driving in Mukilteo when a drunk driver crossed the center line and hit her head on. She suffered multiple injuries, but the most severe injury was to her ankle. She had already undergone several ankle surgeries and she was looking at a long and painful recovery. It was likely that she would suffer a permanent disability as the result of this incident.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage - Protect Yourself

uninsured.jpgWhile your liability coverage pays for the damages you cause, it does not do anything to help you when you are injured by someone else. Once that person's liability coverage is exhausted, or if he doesn't have insurance, you are out of luck unless you have purchased uninsured/underinsured coverage as part of your own auto insurance.
