Many people might not realize the problem that uninsured drivers cause in the Unites States. According to a recent report, approximately 14 percent of drivers in the U.S. are uninsured. This means there is a significant change that if you get rear-ended or injured in a crash, the at-fault driver wouldn't be able to pay for damages or medical expenses.
This can result in severe economic hardship for an accident victim. Sometimes medical expenses cost thousands of dollars just for an emergency room visit, not including hospital admissions or rehabilitation that might be necessary after a person is discharged from the hospital.
