Were you involved in a car accident in which the at-fault driver was uninsured? Few things are worse than getting in a crash with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. An “uninsured vehicle” can include a vehicle that is not covered in a state that requires automobile insurance, a vehicle that is used in a hit and run or a stolen vehicle
While Arizona law requires that all drivers carry automobile insurance. Every Arizona driver must carry minimum levels of coverage, which includes $15,000 bodily injury liability for one person, $30,000 bodily injury liability for two or more persons and $10,000 property damage liability.
Failure to carry proof of insurance can result in a fine of $500 to $1000. A driver who possesses three or more violations for not providing proof of insurance within a three year period will have to submit proof of financial responsibility before he/she can have their license and registration plates restored. While these hard-hitting laws are in place, many individuals still fail to obey the law. Some statistics suggest that up to 25% of drivers in Arizona go without insurance.
If a negligent driver is unable to afford insurance coverage premiums, it will be difficult for you to recover money damages directly from the responsible party. But if vehicle defects, drunk driving or municipal negligence was involved, you could still have a fighting chance at financial recovery.
Insurance is intended to make compensation for injuries and property damage easy and when a motorist is uninsured, a major headache can result for all victims involved in the crash.
