The latest study shows that one in six Colorado drivers is uninsured. This study only confirms what we have known for years, that drivers often rely on luck and not insurance. When finances are tight, some drivers forgo car insurance, cross their fingers, and hope that they don’t cause a car accident.
With at least 1/6th of all Colorado motorists driving without insurance and even more driving with inadequate levels of insurance, is there any doubt that you should have uninsured/underinsured motorist benefits as part of your auto insurance coverage? If you have liability coverage, that will only protect you if you cause the car crash. Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage protects you against drivers who injure you and do not have insurance or have very little coverage to compensate you.
