Auto Accidents Caused by Drivers without Insurance
What happens if you are injured in a car or other motor vehicle accident caused by another driver who does not have insurance? Connecticut law requires motorists to have insurance, but if they have no coverage, that offers little help to you.
Luckily, you have insurance of your own that can provide coverage for your injuries. By state law, all Connecticut auto insurance plans must include coverage for uninsured motorist claims. If you have auto insurance, you have coverage for uninsured motorist claims. If your uninsured motorist coverage is not sufficient to cover your damages, you may pursue additional compensation from your insurance provider up to the limit of your policy.
Protect Your Rights – Contact a Lawyer
To protect your rights, contact a lawyer immediately after an accident. Do not assume that your insurance company is on your side. If you have been injured by a driver that does not have insurance, you will need to file a claim against your own insurance company, and their goal is to protect their financial interests – not yours.
