Yes. If you’re in an accident and the other driver is uninsured or under-insured, you will be covered.
In California, the law requires that every driver have insurance. However, unfortunately, not every driver does.
What is uninsured/under-insured coverage, you ask? The California uninsured motorist law was created to provide coverage for people who are involved in automobile accident where the other party either has no auto insurance or not enough insurance. It will make you whole again. It protects you and your passengers both financially and physically. It also includes being hit by a hit-and-run driver.
Ask your insurance company for details; it is relatively cheap versus how it can help you when you’re in need.
