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!”

Should I go down to a liability-only policy on my 10-year-old car to save money on my insurance?
I live in Florida and my car is about 10 years old. I have full coverage, but I found out that I can cut my rate in half if I drop down to a liability-only policy. I hadn't thought about making this change before, but now I am wondering if I should.
