Q: What Happens if I Am Injured By a Motorist With No Insurance?
While it is against the law to drive in New York without minimum liability auto insurance—which includes $25,000/$50,000 for bodily injury and $10,000 for property damage—drivers continue to get behind the wheel without an adequate level of coverage. Fortunately, uninsured motorist (UM) coverage is also mandatory in the state of New York. This means that you should be able to file a claim with your own insurance company after being involved in an uninsured motorist accident. It is important to note that you could also do the same if you were ever involved in a hit and run accident.
