Can I Sue if the Person Who Caused the Car Accident Has No Insurance?

Unfortunately, drivers in St. Louis get away with not having insurance all the time. As you would imagine, sometimes those drivers get into accidents that they have caused. If you have been the victim of this type of accident, you need to know if there’s anything you can do to recover damages.

Filing an Uninsured Motorist Claim

It’s a good idea for you to purchase coverage from your own insurance company in the event that you are hit by a driver without insurance. It will add some money to your monthly premium, but the type of coverage it offers you is worth every penny you will spend.

Of course, there may still be problems with your claim. You might think that because you’re dealing with your own insurance company, the process should be seamless, but that isn’t always the case. You may still need to consult with a St. Louis car accident attorney for some legal assistance.

Uncovering the Truth

Sometimes drivers do have insurance, but they just don’t want you to know. When you work with a St. Louis car accident attorney, they know how to find out what’s really going on. If the other driver is hiding a policy, that can be found out. You can then proceed with filing a claim for your damages and any injuries that you sustained as a victim.
