What to Do if You are in a Wreck with an Uninsured or Underinsured Driver
January 19, 2021 | Palmer Law
Any auto accident can be terrifying but one that was another driver’s fault can make it even more frightening and difficult to navigate. The worry and stress after an accident can increase ten-fold if you find out that the negligent driver has no insurance (an “uninsured motorist”) or has too little insurance (an “underinsured motorist”) to pay for your injuries and treatment.
Unfortunately, uninsured motorists are all too common on Kansas roadways. Many people violate state law that requires all drivers to carry a certain amount of liability insurance. In Kansas, state law requires that drivers, at a minimum, carry the following insurance on their vehicles:
* $25,000 for bodily injury per person
* $50,000 for bodily injury per accident
* $25,000 for property damage per accident
