Uninsured Motorists Costs US $2.6 Billion per Year
Most Americans are careful to be sure they always have car insurance on all of their vehicles. However, an oversight, or neglecting to pay your car insurance premium can quickly cause problems; especially when you're in a car accident.
As a matter of fact, according to an article in The Fiscal Times, uninsured drivers cost the United States more than $2.6 billion dollars every year.
You may wonder why these costs (which are 75% higher than they were just a decade ago) are so high, but the reason seems to be a never-ending cycle. That amount is actually paid for through higher insurance premiums by those who are insured.
Every single year, people fail to pay their premiums or they neglect to get auto insurance altogether, simply because most of them can't afford it. Most states require drivers to obtain auto coverage for their vehicles, but many of them don't enforce the laws.
Getting into an accident and settling with an insurance company can be time consuming and fraught with problems and extra stress. Brandon Venegas, Harvard-trained lawyer, tenaciously works to get you the settlement that you deserve.
