However, when there is no insurance, it is usually because there is nothing worth insuring. Although true, Wisconsin now requires mandatory insurance for all automobiles in Wisconsin. If the at-fault person is uninsured, your Uninsured Motorist portion of your automobile insurance policy would cover your accident and injuries caused from that accident.
