So you've been injured in a car accident in West Virginia. You feel your rights will be protected because everyone has insurance, right? Unfortunately, you may be wrong. Often times, the other driver is uninsured, meaning that the at–fault driver has no insurance to cover your damages. This is a serious problem and you will need an attorney familiar with uninsured motorist law.
According to the Insurance Research Counsel, 9.7% of all drivers were uninsured in West Virginia in 2006. This figure was 9% in 2008. That means that almost one out of every 10 drivers on the road in West Virginia is consistently driving without insurance, placing you and me at risk. It is for this reason that all drivers should carry uninsured motorist coverage.
