If I was involved in a car accident with someone that did not have insurance can I still bring a claim?
Yes. You can bring a claim for any damage that results from the negligent act of another. The problem with an uninsured driver is not whether you will be successful in obtaining a judgment but whether you will be able to collect any money for the damages awarded by the jury or a judge. If you have Uninsured/Underinsured coverage on your vehicle you can bring a claim directly against your insurance company if the person that has hurt you is either not insured or is insured for less than your coverage. This type of insurance is always a very good idea to carry on your vehicle to serve as protection for you and your family in the event that you are involved in an accident with someone that has no insurance.
