Q
I was hurt in an Atlanta car crash. What happpens to my claim if one of the other drivers has no insurance or has insufficient insurance to cover the cost of my damages?

A

In Georgia, uninsured motorist coverage and underinsured motorist coverages are not mandatory.  If you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, that part of your own insurance policy will compensate you for your injuries.  

Nearly 20 percent of fatal accidents are caused by uninsured drivers, so carrying uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is a good idea.  If you do not have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, it is a good idea to speak to an attorney who specializes in Atlanta car crashes.  After considering the entire accident, he may be able to help you find other resources to pay your damages.
