Most states require vehicle owners to have auto liability insurance, but many drivers remain on the road today who still do not have it. This creates a slew of problems for fellow drivers on the road who get into an accident with an uninsured driver and obtain injuries. At Shea Law Group, we understand stress the damage that an auto accident can have. From lack of transportation, car repairs, medical bills, missed work, and serious injuries, our experienced attorneys will represent you and work hard to hold the proper party responsible so that you can focus on recovery.
What If I’m Injured In A Crash Involving An Uninsured Driver?
If the other driver refuses to provide insurance information or doesn’t have insurance, it is important to act immediately. You should call the police if any injuries occurred, and contact your own insurance company or an accident attorney to file a claim and sue the other driver.
Not only does the lack of insurance cause enough issues already, but many of these types of accidents also involve the uninsured driver trying to flee the scene as quickly as possible to avoid trouble with the police. Make sure to take down the license plate number, make and model of his or her vehicle and get as much information from the driver as possible (name, address, etc.).
Victims of accidents with uninsured motorists may be able to obtain compensation, and contacting an attorney can increase the chances of doing so. Such accidents can cause a variety of issues for the victim, and an attorney can assist you in securing compensation to cover things like:
• Medical expenses
• Vehicle repair or replacement
• Current and future lost wages
• Funeral expenses
• Pain, suffering and emotional distress
An attorney at the Chicago-area law firm of Shea Law Group can assist you at every step to ensure you have the proper documentation to support your case.
