Top Risks of Being Hit by an Uninsured Motorist

It’s an unfortunate fact that many drivers in Texas take the massive risk of getting behind the wheel while uninsured. Not only are they breaking the law on their end, but they are also putting innocent lives at risk with their negligence.

When an uninsured driver causes a collision, not only do their victims have to live with the pain and suffering that results from an accident, but there are also several inherent risks that come with the situation.

Here’s a look at some of the biggest risks of being involved in a collision with an uninsured motorist, and how Bober Law firm can help

They Could Become a Hit and Run Case

The legal ramifications of driving without insurance are quite severe. Between license suspensions, fines, and lengthy impounds, it’s not surprising that uninsured drivers may not want to face the consequences of their actions.

Whether they are illegally in the country or just didn’t feel like paying for insurance, the likelihood that a driver will stick around if able is pretty slim.

While documentation and eyewitness accounts don’t make it impossible to track down an uninsured driver, it will definitely be a difficult task. Trust an experienced personal injury attorney to help you build a case and hunt down the assailant.

Your Injuries All Land on Your Shoulders

In most accidents, the at-fault person’s insurance will hopefully help cover most, if not all of the injured parties’ medical expenses, lost wages, and potentially, property damage.

Sadly, it’s difficult for victims to claim compensation from insured drivers. So, when dealing with an uninsured driver, any and all accident-related expenses will be paid for out-of-pocket.

Recovery Time Could Leave You Financially Crippled

Sometimes a personal injury is so severe that a person is physically unable to work. Recovery from such injuries could take months. Without an appropriate amount of payment from the offending driver’s insurance, your unplanned time off could cost you thousands.

This is most certainly the outcome of your situation when dealing with an uninsured accident without the help of an experienced attorney.

How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?

Collecting compensation for your pain and suffering from an uninsured driver can be difficult. However, the right personal injury lawyer can help you barrel through some little-known loopholes that can bring you closer to resolving your financial crisis after an accident.

We Help You Make Claims with DPS

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is dedicated to helping victims of uninsured accidents start the process of recovering damages, medical bills, and other financial obligations associated with your accident.

Keep in mind, however, that DPS does have stringent guidelines to when a claim can be made and how it’s deemed acceptable for revision. A reliable Dallas personal injury lawyer can help you gather essential documents and information that will easily push a claim with DPS forward.

If successful, a claim with DPS can lead to a local driver’s license suspension that will only be lifted as the uninsured driver pays off their debt to you over time.

Sometimes it takes the process of litigation to finally get an uninsured driver or your own insurance to help pay for your pain and suffering. The personal injury lawyers of Bober Law Firm have the experience to build a detailed case for your claim.
