When deciding what type of insurance coverage you need to get for your car, one essential type of coverage to consider is uninsured motorist (UM) coverage. According to the Insurance Research Council (IRC), approximately 1 in 7 drivers in the United States hits the road without insurance. Not only is this illegal, but it also can prevent you from recovering any compensation in an injury claim if you are hurt in an Atlanta car accident. 

The IRC estimates that 14% to 15% of Georgia’s drivers are uninsured, making an Atlanta car accident with an uninsured driver very possible. An ailing economy may be to blame for the increased number of uninsured drivers. No matter what the reason, you need to protect yourself with uninsured motorist coverage. The benefits include:  
  • coverage for bodily and personal injuries;
  • car and property damage; and
  • death and dismemberment. 

Without this coverage, you may have to pay your medical bills and car repairs on your own. In the unfortunate event you are in an Atlanta car accident and do not have UM, you may still be able to file an injury claim. A Fulton personal injury attorney could take a look at your case and let you know what your options might be to pursue compensation.
