Can you recover for your injuries if you have been in a car accident with an uninsured driver?
It is recommended that you contact a lawyer at Theta Law Firm, LLP right away so they can review and discuss your case with you. Each set of facts are different and a professional attorney at Theta Law Firm can review your case and go over your options with you free of charge.
Can I Get My Car Fixed If I Was Hit By A Person With No Insurance?
An attorney will need to inspect your insurance policy to determine whether you are covered in case of an accident caused by an uninsured driver. If you have collision coverage you should be covered. If you have uninsured motorist property damage coverage, it means you are able to recover some funds to fix your car. However, the amount you get depends on the limits of coverage. Talk to an attorney at Theta Law Firm, LLP so they can tell you what your limits are. It is also critical to determine whether the person that hit you does in fact have no insurance. There are countless instances where it’s found that insurance does in fact exist. A lawyer can help you get to the bottom of this.
If you do not have collision coverage and you do not have uninsured motorist property damage coverage, an attorney can find whether any other insurance coverage exists that would get your car repaired. If in fact there is no insurance coverage, then the person that hit you is liable personally for the damages caused. A lawyer at Theta Law Firm, LLP can guide you through the process of going after the uninsured driver to recover for the damages caused by the uninsured driver.
What If I Am Injured By An Uninsured Driver?
If you are in a car accident or motorcycle accident and the at-fault party does not have any insurance contact Theta Law Firm, LLP right away for a free consultation.

Often you may be eligible to recover from an uninsured motorist policy or from another liable party.

If in fact there is no applicable insurance coverage from anyone, the uninsured at-fault driver is still liable to you and you can still recover for your injuries. You will want to get in touch with the lawyers at Theta Law Firm, LLP to check the assets of the at-fault uninsured driver. A lawyer can then advise you the best avenue to pursue in order to recover for the injuries you sustained.
