Uninsured drivers in Alabama
The Insurance Research Council estimated that about 20 percent of Alabama drivers were uninsured in 2012, well above the national average of 12.6 percent. Adding uninsured motorist coverage to your policy can help pay for damage when the at-fault driver doesn't have insurance.
