Motor vehicle accidents take place every day in California, and although it is State law that all drivers are required to have auto insurance, many drivers on the road are uninsured or underinsured. If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident in California in which the negligent party was uninsured, please contact a California uninsured motorist attorney at Cohen Injury Attorneys today for a free consultation.

$5,000 for damage to property in an accident.

It is illegal for anyone to drive without a driver’s license or car insurance in California. Unfortunately there are countless unlicensed and uninsured drivers on the roads, which is why it is so important that you protect yourself with “uninsured motorist” coverage in case of an accident with an uninsured driver.
