Even though Texas law requires all drivers to have automobile insurance, more than 14 percent of drivers who are on the road are uninsured. This can be devastating to you if you are injured due to the negligence of an uninsured motorist.
The good news is that Texas law also requires insurance companies to include uninsured motorist coverage as part of your own automobile policy. The only way you will not have this coverage is if your insurance company offered it to you, but you declined to accept it and put in writing the fact that you were declining coverage.
Your uninsured motorist policy will provide you coverage for your medical bills due to your injury, your lost wages, and the damage to your vehicle. The limits will be the same limits as the amounts of liability coverage you have.
Coverage for a Hit-and-Run Accident Included
If a hit-and-run driver has made contact with your car, your uninsured policy will cover the damages caused by the accident. Your insurance company will likely search for the culprit to make him or her pay, but you do not have to worry about that part of it.
One major fact you need to be aware of: If there was no contact, there will be no coverage, even if the other driver caused your accident. For example, if the driver was driving toward you in your lane, and you swerved to avoid a head-on collision and hit a tree, there is no uninsured motorist coverage since there was no physical contact between the two vehicles.
