Never thought

about that. It is something that would help and so they should be against it.

Uninsured Motorist

Louisian has the same kind of law. No insurance they take the license off the car so that you don't drive it. Pay the fine and you get the tag back. I wish that all states would have some kind of law like that. But I guess that they are afraid to offend some one. (the illegals).

uninsured motorist.

johnm405, assuming you had the guy's name/license plate, why didn't your insurance company go after him? Even if they couldn't collect from him, you should have been able to get a settlement. Isn't that what the "uninsured motorist" clause is for in your insurance policy?

Deductible

In most cases John would be stuck with the deductible. The insurance company many times figure it is cheaper to do nothing.
Long time ago in SoCal, an illegal hit me. My insurance paid me all except for my deductible. A very large friend of mine went to the house of the registered owner and collected the $100.
....And now for the rest of the story. About a year later an Hispanic man knocked on my door. He said the state would not renew his driver's license because of an unresolved accident involving me. He was stocky and much older than the guy that hit me and this guy spoke English. I checked my accident report and his DL# matched the report. He told me his wallet had been stolen a long time ago and he had received a duplicate from DMV. We guessed that all Hispanics must look alike to the cop that investigated the wreck.

Why would you pay a Insurance company and NOT file on the Uninsured Motorist claim of YOUR policy?

You end up paying..

insurance companies then raise your rates. This makes it damaging financially for yourself. Also, if someone is carrying liability/comprehensive and not collision the damages probably wouldn't be covered.

But you are wrong.

Dallas is about the Cowboy cheerleaders!!!

Also I know San Antonio, Waco and Grand Prairie, TX will impound a non insured vehicle.

You better check with your agent. Mine tells me uninsured motorist covers anyone hurt in your vehicle in case of an accident. You need collision coverage to get your vehicle covered.

Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

IDid Check

I did check but the state said they were doing somethng. I talked to the mand and all. traded the care in after wating six months with no action form anyone. Didn't use the insurance company as they implied it would be hare to get blood out of a turnip. Long time agoe and I would do things different now. My may connent was meant why have laws on the books if they aren't enforced.
