South Carolina does not require an individual to maintain auto insurance coverage in order to legally operate a motor vehicle. In fact, owners have the right to opt out of any such insurance requirement by simply paying an annual fee of $500 to the State of South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles. Let that fact sink in . . . . the individual you have just been involved in an accident with is not covered by an auto insurance policy.
How will you pay for the medical bills which are the result of the accident? How will you pay to have your auto repaired? How will you be compensated for the pain and suffering caused by their recklessness?
Uninsured Motorist Coverage will protect you in the event of an accident caused by either a hit-and-run driver or an uninsured driver. You can rest easy knowing that your needs will be tended to in good order as the result of your determination to adequately insure your vehicle. As we discussed previously, uninsured motorist coverage is also required as part of your liability auto insurance as mandated by the South Carolina Department of Insurance.
