In this video Mark Wham, car accident attorney in the The Woodlands and Spring, Tx, talks about why you may want to consider purchasing uninsured motorist coverage in Texas.

Uninsured Texas Drivers

Nearly 1/3 of the drivers on Texas roadways do not have valid auto insurance.

Many drivers purchase an insurance policy, just so they can get a certificate of insurance, and then stop making the payments. This causes  their coverage to lapse.

If you get hit by a driver with invalid coverage, then you will wish you had uninsured motorist coverage.

Hit & Run Drivers – Flee the Scene

When a hit & run driver flees the scene of a collision, it may be impossible to identify who the at fault driver is.

Suddenly you find yourself in a situation where there is zero insurance money to be collected for your injuries because (a) you can’t identify the other driver, and (b) you don’t have uninsured motorist coverage.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage is Recommended in Texas

You can see from the scenarios above exactly why the personal injury attorneys at Wham & Rogers, PLLCrecommend that you purchase uninsured motorist coverage.

Uninsured motorist insurance coverage protects you when an uninsured driver injures you or your family.

Many people don’t realize that uninsured coverage also applies to a bicycle rider or pedestrian who has been injured by an uninsured driver.
