Wrongful Death Caused by an Uninsured Motorist

Wrongful Death Caused by an Uninsured Motorist

Every time you get behind the wheel, it is assumed that you understand there are inherent risks in doing so. While driving is not the safest form of transportation by a long shot, it is certainly a necessary daily activity for many when it comes to getting to work, running errands, and fulfilling a number of other responsibilities. Still, the unfortunate fact is that instances of motor vehicle accidents in the United States have been on the rise for about a decade now and show no signs of plateauing or decreasing any time soon.

What can make the reality of a car accident even worse than normal, however, is coming to find out that the driver of the other vehicle is uninsured. This can be a devastating realization to make, especially in serious accidents where there is major and expensive damage done to your vehicle and perhaps even injuries sustained to you and your passengers. If ever you find yourself in a such a situation, it is important that you know the proper steps to take to ensure that you do not end up footing the entire cost of your car repairs, medical expenses, and other costs related to being in a car accident.

Of course, the first thing that you will want to do is to ensure that everybody is physically okay. Even if nobody in your car seems to be seriously hurt, it is always best to go to the hospital anyway and get checked out. Often times, victims of accidents do not initially notice signs and symptoms of injuries because they still have an adrenalin rush flowing through their bodies as a result of the accident itself.

Once everybody is deemed okay and it is established that the other driver does not have insurance, you will need to still get his or her contact information so that you can contact them down the road to resolve the issue. Since you will not have an insurance company to file a claim with, you will most likely need to take them to court to receive compensation to fix your car and pay for medical expenses. Keep in mind that uninsured drivers are likely to give false contact information to avoid being brought to court, so it is also a good idea to call the police and have an official report generated so that you can ensure the contact information is accurate.
