The laws in Massachusetts require drivers to carry automobile insurance. Although the laws require it, not all drivers on the road have insurance. If you are ever hit and injured by an uninsured driver, it is very difficult to recover money damages on your own. Injured people are always worried there is no insurance to compensate them for their injuries or cover the expenses of the car accident.
The good news is that Massachusetts law also makes Uninsured Motorist Coverage mandatory for all insurance policies. Therefore, in cases where you have been hit by an uninsured driver and you have car insurance, you can pursue money damages and compensation from your own insurance company.
