Involved in an Accident with an Uninsured Motorist?
The damage from most car accidents is paid by insurance. Once it is determined who was at fault in the crash, the insurance company for that party will pay the damages and the case will be settled. Unfortunately, while it is against the law to drive without insurance in place, many people do it every day. If you are hit by a driver without insurance, you may not know how to proceed financially. To get help, reach out to a car accident lawyer to review your options.
Your Own Insurance May Save the Day
Depending on the policy you carry for your own vehicle, you might be able to cover damages even though you were not at fault. This is due to something called ‘Uninsured Motorist’ coverage, which is an option through most insurance companies. If you carry this on your policy, you may be covered for the damages that you suffered in the accident. Of course, insurance companies are never too eager to pay out claims, so they may try to deny your claim even if you do have this coverage as part of your policy. An experienced car accident lawyer will be able to help you deal with the insurance company and pursue what you deserve.
A Lawsuit Could Be Possible
In some cases, it may make sense to take legal action against the uninsured party who caused the accident. That won’t always be the right step to take, which is again why it is so important to have a car accident lawyer on your side. There are a number of options here for you to seek out damages, so going over the details of the case with an attorney is your best bet to make a plan. Get started on this task right away to make sure too much time doesn’t pass between the accident and your next steps.
