Is Automobile Insurance Required in Wisconsin?


Wisconsin joined the vast majority of States nine years ago that require an automobile on the road to have insurance.  However, many drivers still flaunt the law and make the choice to drive without insurance.  In the event you are injured by a driver without insurance, your own automobile insurance policy should have uninsured motorist coverage.  In many cases, the drivers who drive without insurance are without adequate assets to cover the damages they have caused.  Uninsured motorist coverage is many times the only avenue of recovery for those injured by an uninsured motorist.

In certain cases, very quick time limits are necessary to be met in order to meet the requirements to make a claim for uninsured motorist coverage.  You should not delay in seeking the advice of an attorney.
