Car Crash with an Uninsured Motorist can be the worst!

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Accidents

Uninsured motorist accidents occur when you’re involved in a collision with a driver who lacks auto insurance coverage. While it is the law that drivers have insurance, not everyone adheres to this rule.  In some cases, the other driver may have insurance, but it may not be enough to cover your expenses fully.

After an Accident

A car accident, especially one involving an uninsured motorist, is always unexpected and unpleasant, but knowing what to do can make your physical and financial recovery easier.

Check for Injuries

Immediately following an auto accident, the first step is to check yourself and others for injuries and contact emergency services if necessary. If you have injuries that are not life-threatening, you should see a doctor as soon as possible. Injuries from auto accidents are not always immediately apparent.

Document, document, document.  Get the names and contact information for everyone involved and any witnesses. It is a good idea also to make notes of any statements made at the scene. You should also write down general information about the accident, such as vehicle direction and speed as well as road conditions.

Pictures are worth a thousand….words.

Taking photos and videos can be very helpful as well. If there were no police officers at the scene, you must file a written report of the accident with the local police within four days if there were injuries or property damage over $500.

Contact your insurance company, know your coverage

While gathering contact information from the other parties, you may find then, you have been involved in an accident with an uninsured driver.  Contact your insurance company to inquire about the coverage your policy may offer in this situation. If you do not have uninsured motorist coverage included in your policy, you will have to pay out of your own pocket for car repairs, medical bills and expenses, and possibly for alternate transportation while your car is in the shop for repairs. We can help with that.

Uninsured Motorists

To recover these out-of-pocket expenses, you will need to collect them directly from the uninsured motorist who was at fault in the accident. In cases where there are more than $1000 in damages or if there are injuries, you may report the uninsured motorist within 180 days to the Washington State Department of Licensing. If the uninsured motorist still does not compensate you, the Department of Licensing can suspend their license. If you have not received payment for what you are owed, you can pursue a civil lawsuit against the at-fault uninsured motorist.
