Controlling your emotions after an uninsured driver hits you

When it comes to motor vehicle collisions, the consequences can be incredibly overwhelming, whether victims experience mental trauma, debilitating injuries or lose their lives. These challenges can be especially difficult for car crash victims in Spokane and across the state of Washington who have been struck by an uninsured driver. At Cooney Law Office, we recognize the multitude of challenges that victims of these collisions may have. In addition to the aforementioned consequences, people in this position may be under a great deal of pressure and they may have uncertainty over taking legal action to access the compensation they deserve.

Should you sue an uninsured driver for your damages?

Your first thought when the at-fault driver tells you he or she has no auto insurance is that you will file a lawsuit in the Washington courts to get the money to cover your damages. After all, if you file a claim against your own insurance, the rates may go up.

What if I am hit by a distracted driver with no insurance?

After a distracted driver crashes into your car in Washington, you expect to get out and trade information so you can make sure he or she is held responsible. Naturally, this includes insurance information because you will want to file a claim and get expenses covered by his or her policy. However, if the other driver does not have at least the minimum coverage, you will have to go another route.

If the other driver’s auto insurance doesn’t cover medical bills

Any car accident can shake up your life, but when you are seriously injured in a crash in Washington, simply making it from one day to the next may be all you can handle. If the other driver did not have an adequate auto insurance policy, concern over who will pay your medical bills and other damages may make the situation seem intolerable. The legal team at Cooney Law Offices, P.S., has helped many car accident victims find solutions in cases like these.
