Can I use my health insurance after an accident with an uninsured motorist?
"I was hurt in an accident and the other driver was arrested for DUI. He was at fault, and it turns out he was also uninsured and unlicensed.
I have Alabama state-minimum liability coverage. Will my health insurance pay for my medical bills?"

“If you have medical payments coverage on your auto insurance policy, that coverage will pay out first until the policy limits are exhausted.
Once those limits are exhausted, or if you do not carry medical payments coverage, your health insurance will pay out according to the terms of your policy (coinsurance, copays, deductibles, etc).
More uninsured drivers are are on the roads every year. For the future, consider adding some additional coverage to your auto insurance policy for more complete protection.
Hope you have a quick and full recovery!”

Can you explain to me how car insurance works?
I'm not quite sure how car insurance works. Is it required by the government or do people buy it to protect their assets? How does it work if you file a claim?
