One (1) in four (4) Oklahomans do not carry automobile liability insurance. According to the Muskogee Phoenix the latest national survey shows one in four Oklahomans drive without insurance. The publication states that
Oklahoma’s rate in a survey released in January by the national Insurance Research Council is 24 percent — the fourth-worst in the nation.
As an Oklahoma auto accident attorney, I have seen the devastating effects of negligent drivers who do not carry liability insurance as mandated by the state. There have been times when clients have had hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills with no health insurance or other avenue to pay those bills. Given my experience in dealing with uninsured drivers, I typically recommend that individuals carry at least one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00) in uninsured motorist coverage. For some, they may need more. However, anything less subjects you and your family to the risks of being underinsured should you or a family member sustain serious injuries in a car accident.
