Assess the Damages
If you are involved in an auto accident with an uninsured motorist, and you suffer personal injury, our attorney team can help you receive compensation. Consider the severity of injuries and damages before considering any type of legal action.
There are no fault laws that protect you. Regardless of which driver is at fault, your insurance coverage should still cover any damages and injuries you acquired. If you have uninsured motorist insurance, your insurance will cover the costs.
Suing the Other Party
In the worst-case scenario, you may find yourself with a lawsuit on your hands. If your personal injury or vehicle damages are severe and fall outside of your insurance coverage, most no fault states allow you to sue the other party. Keep in mind that if the court rules in your favor and requires that the other party pay for your damages, it does not guarantee you the money. The uninsured party did not have the money to pay for insurance, so the likelihood that they can come up with the funds to repay you is minimal. If you’re facing any situation in which an uninsured motorist is involved, contact an attorney from Robert J. DeBry and Associates.
