Uninsured Accident Attorney
Nobody expects to be involved in a car accident when they go out on the road, but it unfortunately still happens. When in an accident, it is even less expected for the other driver involved to be uninsured. Though this is not always the case, this is a circumstance some drivers find themselves in, and it can cause quite a headache when it comes to reaching a resolution for the damages.
One-In-Five Nevada Motorists Are Uninsured
Did you know that 20% of Nevada’s drivers are uninsured? Being involved in a car crash is a frustrating situation to be in, especially when you’re not at fault. It can be even more frustrating when the other driver is uninsured and you fear that now the damages must come out-of-pocket.
Unfortunately, this scenario is far too common in Nevada. Insurance Journal published an article in May of 2018 that states, “Nevada has 1.9 million drivers and 2.5 million registered vehicles.” Department of Motor Vehicles spokesman Kevin Malone says that estimates put the number of uninsured motorists at up to this staggering 20 percent. When the chances of being involved in a collision with an uninsured motorist are 1 in 5, the only way to ensure that you are protected is by having Uninsured Motorist coverage through your insurance company.
In addition to ensuring that you are covered through your insurance policy, it is essential that you contact an experienced car accident attorney should you be involved in any collision, but even more so when it involves an uninsured, or an underinsured driver.
How can you stay protected?
You can’t control how much coverage other motorists choose, but you can make sure that all of your bases are covered. Being involved in an accident with a driver that is uninsured or underinsured can be frustrating, and there are many factors that need to be considered in order to get you the full and fair compensation that you deserve.
