If you get into a car accident, you have about a one-in-eight chance that the other driver is uninsured, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. This presents a problem if the accident was not your fault. Motor vehicle insurance exists to cover your property damage and medical expenses if you are injured in an accident. However, these costs come out of your pocket or your own insurance if the person at fault is uninsured.
Not Paying For Insurance Is Costly
Car insurance is required by law for all drivers in Maryland. Many choose to have the least amount of coverage possible, liability coverage, which satisfies the law but may not be enough to pay for your injuries or vehicle damage. This is known as being underinsured — when a driver has insurance but his or her coverage is insufficient, leaving you to carry the bulk of the financial burden.
