Driver with Beer Between Legs and Little Boy in Back Seat is a Reminder to Get Uninsured Motorist Coverage
Unfortunately, you don’t get to choose who causes your car accident. You or your family member could easily be injured in a crash caused by a driver like the 26-year-old Clearwater woman who was driving her white Ford Mustang the wrong way down Florida Avenue N in Tampa last night. According to the Tampa Bay Times, when she was pulled over, she had an open beer can between her legs and a little boy in the back seat. Her response to police? “I’m not doing sh-,” she told police.
This is this lady’s third arrest for driving under the influence and the third time she has refused to submit to a breath test, police say. Do you really think she had car insurance that would protect you and your family if she caused an automobile accident with you? Drivers like this woman and other drivers that simply cannot afford bodily injury liability coverage (not required in Florida) cause crashes every day. That is why you and your family must carry uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your car insurance policy. If this woman or any person causes you or your family member injuries in a car accident, your uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage will protect you. Otherwise, you may have no recourse for unpaid medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
The attorneys at the personal injury law firm of Perenich, Caulfield, Avril & Noyes strongly recommend that you check your car insurance policy today and make sure you are protecting your family with stacked uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Without it, your life could be forever changed due to a car accident that wasn’t even your fault.
