Uninsured Motorist Information
California requires that all drivers have automobile insurance coverage, although many people are still found driving without insurance. Insurance Research Council recently conduct a study which found that California has the highest number of uninsured drivers than any other state in the contiguous U.S at 4.1 million uninsured drivers. Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage is a peripheral add on to your policy, although not required by the state of California.
Uninsured coverage kicks in when a victim is in an accident with another driver who does not have any insurance. Because the other party does not have any insurance (as required by law), there is no means for victim to recover for medical damages and bodily injury that occurred during the accident. The victims own insurance company will then kick in and help the victim of the accident, their own insured client, to receive some kind of compensation for medical treatment and damages the victim received as a result of the accident.
Although uninsured motorist coverage is not required in California, it is always good to pay a little extra for this protection because believe it or not, many drivers still drive without insurance and accidents that occur can cause the victim to develop substantial loss.
