Uninsured Drivers Leave Many in Precarious Position after a Crash

Posted on October 26, 2007 4:10 am under Car Accidents

Wisconsin is one of the few states in the country that does not have a compulsory insurance law.  A driver can face serious consequences if he or she does not have insurance after an automobile accident, but that didn’t help one woman in Janesville whose daughter’s car was wrecked by an uninsured motorist.  The woman will have to pay for another car for her daughter out of her own pocket, according to the Janesville Gazette.
Susann Sexe thought she was covered.

But she didn’t get a dime from her insurance company auto accident claim after her 17-year-old daughter’s parked car was hit by an uninsured motorist Aug. 30.

Sexe had to buy another vehicle out of her own pocket, this time deciding to pay more for additional insurance coverage.

Sexe of Janesville was angry to find out that Wisconsin’s safety responsibility law-Wisconsin’s alternative to compulsory insurance-probably won’t help her.”

Sexe still has other options, including a civil judgment.  If you have been the victim of an uninsured motorist, contact a Wisconsin personal injury lawyer at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today to schedule a free initial consultation.
