There are many distinctions in our state that should make Tennesseans proud – a new report by WalletHub definitely isn’t one of them. The personal finance site recently released a list of “2015′s Most and Least Risky States for Drivers’ Wallets.” It was all based on the percentage of uninsured drivers in a state, and Tennessee isn’t looking very good.
They report that 20.1% of drivers in our state aren’t insured. That puts us all the way down at number 46 on their list. We were only ahead of California, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Florida. That gives you about a one in five chance at colliding with an insured driver. Obviously, you don’t need any other reasons to not get into an accident in our state, but this certainly leaves a bit of room for concern. Topping the list were states like Maine, North Dakota, New York, Utah, and Massachusetts – all of which have a percentage of uninsured drivers under 6%. Our state has a lot of work to do if we want to get to the top of the list.
As auto accident lawyers in Nashville, we know just how complicated the aftermath of a serious wreck can be. Insurance companies never want to pay for the true cost of an accident, so getting the money you need can be incredibly difficult. Now compound that with a negligent driver that doesn’t even have insurance, and it’s going to be even harder to get financial compensation.
