The Legal Implications of Uninsured Motorists

In Delaware, like the great majority of states, auto insurance isn’t a perk or a luxury, it’s a legal requirement to drive. Delaware law mandates that all drivers carry liability insurance to cover damages they may cause in an accident. Despite these strict regulations, many motorists still drive while underinsured or without any insurance at all. This leaves the uninsured motorist and anyone they encounter on the roads vulnerable if an accident occurs.

When an uninsured motorist causes an accident, in part or in whole, it can complicate matters significantly for everyone involved. Unless they have deep pockets, because there’s no insurance company responsible for the uninsured motorist’s actions, victims of these accidents may face obstacles when it comes to seeking compensation for their losses.

Options for Compensation Following an Accident Involving an Uninsured Motorist

There are avenues under Delaware law to seek compensation following an accident with an uninsured motorist. One option is to pursue a claim with your own insurance policy if it provides for uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. This kind of coverage is designed to protect you if you find yourself the victim of an accident with an uninsured motorist. By filing a claim with your insurance company under this coverage, you may be able to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and any other losses you’ve incurred. While you cannot control the actions of other drivers on the road, having an adequate uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage policy can protect you in the event of an accident with an uninsured motorist.
