Definition of Risk Insurance

Drivers who are charged and convicted of DUI (driving under the influence) have an increased risk for insurance companies who agree to pay for certain losses if they are in a car accident. Drivers who are arrested for DUI will not only have to potentially pay high fines they may also be required to purchases additional risk insurance called SR22 Insurance. Risk insurance will have increased premiums and will cost drivers more, but it is necessary to compensate the insurance companies for the increased risk of insuring high risk drivers. Drivers who are in a car accident or who are arrested for DUI should contact a car accident or DUI lawyer as soon as possible to find out the legal penalties for a DUI conviction.
