What Happens if I’m in an Accident With an Uninsured Driver?

Auto accidents are jarring, and though no one ever wants to imagine that the day will come where they’re seriously injured in one, unfortunately, this happens more often than you may think. To make matters worse, there are some drivers who actually operate their vehicles without purchasing insurance. This is both a bad idea and actually illegal. So, if you were injured in an accident with an uninsured driver, what should you do? Who is responsible? Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Bronx car accident lawyer to learn more about these accidents and how our firm can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

Who is responsible if I’m injured in an accident with an uninsured driver?

If you are injured in an accident with an uninsured driver, you are most likely unsure of where to turn. Typically, when someone is injured in an accident, they will sue the other driver’s insurance company, but if they have no insurance, who do they sue? The answer is simple: New York State requires that all motorists purchase uninsured motorist coverage. When you are injured in an accident with an uninsured motorist, you can actually file a claim with your own insurance company to help recover the compensation you need to heal.

How long will I have to bring a personal injury claim in the Bronx?

In New York State, the statute of limitations dictates the amount of time a person has to bring a personal injury claim. The statute of limitations in New York State is, typically, three years, which means that in most cases, you will have three years from the date of your accident to bring a personal injury claim against the liable party. Do not make the mistake of waiting to see if your injuries heal on their own, as so many do. If you wait past the three-year time limit, you will most likely permanently lose your right to sue. The bottom line is that if you’ve been hurt in any sort of auto accident as a result of another person’s negligence, you should bring your claim to the attention of a competent Bronx car accident lawyer as soon as you can. Our firm is prepared to help you today–simply pick up the phone and give us a call.
