Often times the most horrible crashes are caused by the most irresponsible drivers -- drivers without insurance. Generally, across the United States, the law requires the driver of a car to buy car insurance in order to legally drive.
An uninsured motorist injury may require the victim to file a lawsuit against their own insurance company
If a person drives without insurance they put themselves and others at risk for any harm or loss they cause.
In the event an injured person is struck by a driver without insurance then they may only have their own insurance policy to turn to for recovery. Unfortunately, many injured people in this situation realize that they are unfamiliar with the terms of their own insurance policies and don’t know what they are entitled to recover.
In that situation it’s important to have your insurance policy and facts of the crash investigated by lawyers on your behalf. The investigation will reveal the insurance options of the crash victim. The investigation will reveal if there are other responsible people for the crash such as people who are guilty of negligent entrustment, dram shop violations or even vehicle defects or maintenance issues.
An uninsured motorist injury may require the victim to file a lawsuit against their own insurance company. When that happens, the insurance company fights those claims as vigorously as they can. Often times the victim of the crash is surprised that the company that they’ve paid hundreds and thousands of dollars in premiums treats them like a stranger – but all too often that’s exactly what happens.
