Not everyone on the road has the proper insurance coverage, which can become
an issue when they are involved in an accident. If you or a loved one
has been injured in a car accident with an uninsured motorist, you are
likely concerned about how to obtain the compensation you deserve. While
there is a common misconception that the person you were injured by must
have insurance in order for you to recover anything, this simply isn’t the case.
In these situations, there are two options to fight for the compensation
you are entitled to. One option you have is to personally sue the uninsured
driver for damages. However, this may not result in the outcome you are
looking for. Getting into a lawsuit with an individual may be financially
draining, especially if the person you are suing does not have the financial
resources to pay you in the first place.
The second and more common approach is to file a claim with your own car
insurance company, under your uninsured motorist coverage. It is always
a good idea to carry such coverage on your policy. This coverage is meant
to protect you in these very situations, as it will cover your damages
and injuries with the help of your own insurance company.
