Car Accidents

Yes. In cases where the negligent party involved in the auto accident doesn’t have insurance coverage, the only way for the injured party to recover is through uninsured/underinsured coverage or to sue the negligent driver personally.

Suing the negligent party personally often is unsuccessful.  With uninsured/underinsured coverage, your insurance company will stand in place of the negligent party and pay for your damages resulting from the accident.

What that means is that if you do not carry the mandated minimum amount of auto insurance coverage, then you cannot recover for the first $15,000 of damages.

However, it may still be possible to recover if your damages from a car accident exceeds $15,000. If you have questions about the serious injuries you received in a car accident, call the Gertler Law Firm at (504) 581-6411 for a free consultation.
