What Happens If the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
If you’ve been in a serious car accident, you might have injuries that are hard to treat and are long-lasting. Naturally, you want to seek compensation from the at-fault driver whose conduct caused the collision. But what do you do if that person was uninsured? Can you still get the compensation you deserve? This will explain how AHC Injury Law can help you do just that.
Can You Claim Compensation If the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
Following a car accident, the purpose of filing a claim and/or a lawsuit is to seek the compensation you deserve, including medical bills incurred, the emotional trauma associated with the collision, and compensation for time you had to take off work due to your injuries. However, seeking compensation occurs slightly differently if the other driver does not have auto insurance.
Uninsured Driver Insurance
Most likely, your attorney will start by verifying to see if you have uninsured motorist coverage. This could be quite straightforward, and you can make a claim on your own policy or a relative’s policy. Depending on the exact nature of your coverage, you might be able to claim compensation for both your own injuries and the property damage to your vehicle. You should ask your lawyer for help.
Who Is to Blame?
Sometimes, the other driver isn’t the only person to blame for an accident. There could be other causes, such as a faulty part in one of the cars or a bad repair. In such a situation, you could get compensated by the people responsible for this defect. Your attorney will enlist the help of experts to figure out whether this could be the case.
