Can I Make a Claim Against a Driver Who Doesn’t Have Car Insurance? (Part 1)
Did you know that nearly one quarter of all drivers in Arizona don’t have car insurance? What’s worse is that because of the economy, many people are decreasing their insurance coverage or even going so far as to drop it altogether.
Because of this new trend, we are seeing car accidents in Glendale and throughout the State of Arizona where the person who caused the accident – and subsequent injuries – didn’t have any car insurance coverage. If you’ve been seriously injured in such an accident, this situation can be very frustrating. While there isn’t a magic solution if this happens to you, a skilled Glendale car accident lawyer may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
First of all, just because the driver who caused the accident said they don’t have car insurance, that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s true. They could be scared and overwhelmed and therefore lie about the situation. But with the help of a skilled attorney, you can quickly find out whether the negligent person has car insurance and how much compensation you can receive for your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses you incurred because of the accident.
Other drivers may simply not know whether they have insurance or not. They could be driving someone else’s car or a car owned by their employer, and therefore not know if there is an available policy that provides coverage. But again, in these cases, it’s as easy for an experienced attorney to do some quick research to find out if the car being driven is insured and how much coverage there is. At Breyer Law Offices, P.C., we have many years of experience conducting this exact kind of research as well as handling many other necessary legal aspects of an auto accident claim.
