Going through a car accident, whether it is a minor fender-bender or a catastrophic head-on collision, is never easy. People can be seriously injured in car accidents, and in the worst of circumstances they could lose their lives. At times like these, it may be essential for accident victims or their families to pursue compensation that will help them cover the many expenses that follow an accident. Yet what happens if the negligent party does not have car insurance?
In these cases, victims can pursue an uninsured motorist lawsuit. This generally happens after two particular types of accidents. The first is an accident in which an unidentified driver causes a hit-and-run crash. The other type of accident is one in which a known person causes an accident, but doesn't have car insurance.
Our firm has handled many uninsured car accident cases such as these in the past. In some cases, the victim has uninsured motorist coverage under their own car insurance policies that may compensate them in such situations. Compensation could include financial recovery for lost wages, medical expenses and other costs associated with the accident. However, insurance coverage may not be enough to meet all these expenses, or it may be denied outright. In these situations, pursuing a lawsuit against a known party may be an option.
