Rise of Uninsured Motorist Amid COVID-19

Rise of Uninsured Motorist Amid COVID-19  

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc on families throughout Oklahoma, the country, and the world. Along with the human toll, there are mounting financial costs associated with the virus as unemployment and personal financial issues mount. This is creating difficult choices for people, some who may drop their uninsured motorist’s coverage or who may no longer afford to pay for automobile insurance altogether.

A Greater Risk to You

In Oklahoma and other states, drivers are required to carry minimum levels of liability insurance. But part of our new reality is that many can no longer afford their coverage. Rather than not drive, they will choose to drive without insurance. This places you at greater risk. If you are injured in an accident that is the fault of another driver, their insurance should pay for your injuries. If they do not have automobile insurance, however, you can turn to your policy’s uninsured or under-insured provision. The problem is often that even if you have uninsured motorists coverage, the limits may be low or the insurance company may not pay the claim to sufficiently cover your expenses. Too often these companies are more concerned about paying their stockholders than clients.

This is why if you are hurt in an accident, even if you have uninsured motorist coverage, you should contact the Owens Law Offices.
