At-Fault Driver Without Insurance

Breaking down every step of the Car Accident Process

What if the at-fault driver does not have insurance or leaves the scene before I get their information?

If you were involved in a vehicle accident with a driver who doesn’t have any insurance, you’ll probably need to rely on your own insurance to cover your losses. For most people, this would be covered by uninsured motorist (UM) coverage, which is usually add-on protection from your insurance company. UIM coverage is only required in a few states, although insurance companies are required by law in most states to offer it to customers.

If you live in a no-fault car insurance state, your own insurance will be paying for your medical bills and other damages after the accident. Therefore, the fact that the at-fault party doesn’t have insurance or that they fled the scene matters much less. Consequently, filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver is more complicated and only relevant in a handful of scenarios. Speak to a car accident lawyer to learn more about whether you live in a no-fault state and what can be done about it. 

Filing a car accident lawsuit

Did you know that car accidents are a leading cause of personal injury in the United States? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are about 6 million car accidents each year, and about 10% of those result in injuries. Injuries from car accidents can be devastating to both the victim and their loved ones. If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver

Finding the best car accident lawyer

It’s not an easy task to find the best car accident lawyer for your case. You may be tempted to go with the first law firm you see or the first billboard you pass, but that might not be the best decision. There are many different factors that go into deciding who is the best. Some lawyers specialize in certain areas, and it’s important to know what you need before you start looking.

The lawyer should be experienced, knowledgeable, and honest. You want someone who will be there for you every step of the way. Whichever source you’re using to gather information about your prospective lawyers, make sure that it’s trustworthy and reliable.
