The Driver Was Uninsured In An Accident. What Do I Do As The Passenger?

On Behalf of | Jan 22, 2020 | Did You Know, Motor Vehicle Accidents

Being involved in an auto accident can be scary if you’re the driver or a passenger.  If you are a passenger, it is important to know what to do if the driver doesn’t have insurance.

I was a passenger in an auto accident and the driver was not insured. What should I do?

In a situation where you are the passenger and the driver wasn’t insured, you should speak with an attorney who should help investigate the case.

However, it depends whether or not your driver was at fault. If your driver was not at fault, then you can make a claim against the insurance company for the other driver involved in the accident.

What if I have coverage?

If your driver was at fault and doesn’t have insurance and if you have uninsured motorist coverage, then that’s something you should look into and you may be able to make the claim.

This can get a little complicated, so it is important to speak with someone who has experience in this area.
