What if the driver doesn't have auto insurance?

Virginia Car Accident Lawyer Richard J. SerpeQ: What if the driver of the car that caused the accident doesn’t have auto insurance?

A: You may still recover compensation for your injuries.  This depends on whether you were occupying a car which had uninsured motorist coverage, or you were covered by your own or a family member’s insurance policy having uninsured motorist coverage at the time of the accident.  This is called an Uninsured Motorist Claim.

In order to protect your rights, we recommend you contact an attorney immediately to find out about the time limitations involved in making an Uninsured Motorist Claim, as well finding out the requirements of the policy you must meet in order to make such a claim.
