Like in pretty much every state in the U.S., Arizona requires that all drivers carry insurance for their vehicles. Unfortunately, approximately 15% of drivers don’t have any insurance at all, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In addition, many more drivers don’t have adequate coverage to compensate for severe injuries or extensive damage. Worse yet, because Arizona is a border state, there is a much higher rate of undocumented and unregistered drivers.
So, what if you’re in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver?
In such cases, it’s important to know your rights and options for compensation.
If you were not at fault in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver, you can often compel your insurance company to pay for damages. However, dealing with insurance companies in such instances can be tricky. You may, for instance, in speaking with the insurance adjustor say the wrong thing, which can lead to your insurance company denying your claim for compensation completely.
That’s why, if you’re involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver in Glendale or anywhere in Arizona, you should contact an attorney immediately.
