What if I am in an accident and do not have car insurance?

All drivers should have insurance coverage. It’s the law in nearly every state, and the legal and financial consequences of driving without insurance are severe. It is without a doubt in your best interests to purchase insurance. If you have questions about how to get the best possible coverage within your budget, we are happy to help you. You can call our Seattle office at 206-285-1743 before talking to your insurance adjuster to get some valuable insider information.

With that said, if you do not have insurance and the other driver does, as long as you were not at fault, you have the right to collect from that driver’s insurance company. If you were the victim of the negligence of another driver, you have a legal right to collect compensation for your injuries, loss, time away from work, and loss of enjoyment of life — just like any other driver.

This one mistake could cost you thousands

Driving without insurance is a violation of the law, but if you were injured by the negligence of another, you have a legal right to be compensated for your injuries. The insurance adjuster might resort to scare tactics if they find out that you were uninsured at the time of the accident, but you are under no legal obligation to sign anything they send you without first speaking to a qualified, knowledgeable injury attorney. The more knowledgeable you are about your rights, the better chance you have at getting compensation for your injuries and losses.
