Uninsured Driver Accidents
Our attorneys explain how the system works
Car accidents can be complicated under any circumstances. But if you're involved in a car crash with an uninsured driver, the legal issues can be even more complex. That's especially true in states like Pennsylvania and New Jersey, where all drivers must have insurance by law.
Knowing what to do after an accident involving an uninsured driver can be confusing. Since the other driver is breaking the law, the most important thing to do is to immediately call the police and report your accident. Then contact Villari, Brandes & Giannone, P.C.
Based in Philadelphia and serving accident victims throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey, our law firm has years of experience handling car accident claims involving crashes caused by uninsured drivers. We understand the laws inside out. We know what needs to be done to win.
Available legal options
Ideally, the uninsured driver who caused your crash will remain at the scene of the accident. Often, drivers without insurance will flee the scene of the crash, leaving you to deal with a hit-and-run accident. You must immediately call the police when this happens.
In either case, you will likely need to file an accident claim with your own insurance company. If you have extra insurance coverage for accidents involving an uninsured motorist, your insurance company should cover your accident.
But whether or not you have such coverage, don't assume that your insurance company will take care of everything. They're a business. And in an effort to maximize profits, many insurance companies do everything they can to reduce or deny accident claims.
How we can help you
