Prop 213: Only One of Many Reasons to Have Proper Car Insurance

Prop 213: Only One of Many Reasons to Have Proper Car Insurance

Auto Accident
If you are in a car crash and another driver is at fault, the other driver’s insurance should cover your losses, and your own insurance generally would not come into play at all. In fact, if you did not have the minimum car insurance required in California, you might not be concerned, since you were not at fault. However, Californians can feel adverse effects from not having insurance even if they did not cause an accident. Proposition 213 changed the law in California to prevent uninsured drivers from collecting non-economic damages in car accident claims, even though someone else was at fault.

The Importance of Substantial Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Auto Accident
When another driver crashes into your vehicle, that driver’s auto insurance coverage should kick in and reimburse you for your medical bills, property damages, and other losses. California law requires drivers to carry liability insurance at all times to make sure that accident victims can receive the compensation they deserve. However, many drivers decide to let their insurance lapse, and they do not have the coverage needed to compensate accident victims. In addition, some people flee the scene of an accident, and you might never identify the driver to know which insurance coverage is applicable. To protect yourself in the event you are in a hit and run, or in a crash with a driver with inadequate insurance, it is essential to have uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage as part of…
