How Does the Aftermath of a Crash with an Uninsured Motorist Work?
Despite tens of thousands of car accidents occurring on a yearly basis, there are not many people who recognize how the process works following the crash. Most just think they call their insurance company and that’s where it ends.
However, there are a number of different situations that need to be considered, especially when the other driver is the one who is considered negligence. Even worse is when the responsible driver does not have insurance coverage to help pay for the losses associated with the crash.
What Happens When the Driver Doesn’t Have Insurance?
After a car accident, the parties are expected to exchange information, including contact information, driver’s licenses, and insurance information. What do you do when the other party doesn’t provide insurance information, though?
In most car accident matters, the at-fault party’s insurance company is responsible for paying out compensation. If they don’t have insurance, though, you have to go through your own insurance company, making it so important to carry uninsured motorist coverage.
However, because insurance companies are not always looking out for those for whom they provide coverage. Even a claim with your own insurance company can be wrongfully denied as insurance companies are often looking to solely protect their own profits.
The insurance company may try to claim that you were deemed partially or fully at fault, especially when they discover it may be their responsibility to pay out compensation. As such, you need protections from the large corporations and their legal teams.
