Whenever you’re hurt, the last thing you want to have to do is to go to court and fight for compensation. The majority of people carry insurance, so if you’re hurt, you can hold them accountable and the insurance company pays out.
When the other party doesn’t have insurance, things can become more difficult. For example, if you’re involved in a two-vehicle collision and are left with a brain injury, you could be looking at tens of thousands of dollars of medical costs (or more). If the other party doesn’t have insurance or doesn’t have adequate insurance, you could be left wondering how you’re going to cover those costs.
What do you need to do if the other party doesn’t have insurance after you’re hurt?
