Protection Against Uninsured At-Fault Drivers In Oklahoma
In the state of Oklahoma, the laws are clear. Every driver needs to secure a minimum of liability insurance before they can drive.
However, there are a number of people who violate this law. Many drive without adequate insurance or without insurance at all. In fact, according to the Insurance Information Institute, at least one in 10 drivers in Oklahoma is uninsured.
Unfortunately, if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident in Oklahoma with a driver who has no auto insurance, you may wonder if you have recourse.
If that driver is at fault, who will cover the costs of medical bills and lost wages?
Don’t Panic. You May Be Able To Still Seek Compensation After A Car Accident With An Uninsured Driver.
When an at-fault driver has inadequate insurance to pay for costs stemming from your injury, only the driver can be liable. You can pursue a cause of action against that driver, however, it is exceedingly rare in today’s economy for any driver to have enough in liquid assets to cover the costs of your medical care, lost wages, property damages and emotional distress.
However, your policy may cover you when you cannot pursue recourse against another driver. This is known as uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
