Arizona car accident victims have a bigger problem to contend with than ever before. According to a new study, almost a quarter of all drivers in Arizona do not have any car insurance. To make matters worse, a recent study shows that there is an increase in the number of people who are dropping their insurance and, for those people who are not dropping insurance entirely because of the terrible economy, there is an increased number of people who are decreasing the amount of insurance that they carry. As a Phoenix personal injury lawyer helping injury victims in motor vehicle accidents throughout Arizona, this is a huge red flag and warning to all Arizona drivers.
It is vital for everybody to purchase adequate amounts of Arizona underinsured motorist coverage and uninsured motorist coverage policies. If more than 25 percent of all drivers do not have insurance, that means that likely more than 25 percent of all motor vehicle accidents are caused by people without insurance. As lawyers helping people from Scottsdale, Arizona, to Tempe, Arizona, to Globe, Arizona, to Mesa, Arizona, and throughout the East Valley and the West Valley, we have seen far to many people who have been tragically injured but did not have enough insurance coverage to protect them.
