Generally, a Tennessee auto accident victim can receive compensation for their losses, if that at-fault motorist has car insurance or assets to cover the damages incurred from the accident. However, in some cases the at-fault party is either uninsured or underinsured; the accident victims may still be eligible to receive compensation under their own insurance policy.
According to the Insurance Research Council, in 2009, 24 percent of Tennessee motorists were uninsured. The Volunteer State ranks third in the U.S. for the most uninsured drivers. With one out of four drivers being uninsured, accident victims may have trouble recovering their losses.
