Were you hit by someone who doesn’t have insurance? Alternatively, were you injured in a car crash with someone who does have insurance but lacks sufficient coverage? Every driver in the state of California must have auto insurance.  It can be frustrating to get the compensation you deserve if the driver doesn’t have any or even enough insurance. Belal Hamideh, experienced injury attorney, can help.  

Throughout the years, Belal and the rest of the team here have successfully aided many individuals facing circumstances similar to yours. During a complimentary consultation, Belal can evaluate the worth of your claim and outline how he can help you secure maximum compensation.

What to Do If You’re In an Accident With Someone Who Lacks Insurance 

First things first: get out of harm’s way. Then, check yourself as well as others for injuries. Call 911. Do that even if it seems like no one was hurt. Exchange contact information with the other party. If they don’t have insurance, be sure to make a note of that. When you get their contact info, don’t admit fault. 

Once You’ve Done All of the Above, Contact Belal for a Free Case Evaluation. 

Many times, if a driver doesn’t have insurance, they may flee the scene. This is “hit and run.” It’s against the law. If you can, get their license plate, pictures/video of their vehicle, and so forth. 

How to Protect Yourself from Uninsured Motorists

Obviously, you can never be 100% safe when you’re on the road. No matter how conscientiously you drive, someone could crash into you. Additionally, you clearly can’t know if someone lacks insurance when they hit you. What you can do, and what Belal as well as the rest of the team recommend, is to obtain uninsured (and/or underinsured) motorist insurance. 

That gives you the best possible chance of getting all of the compensation that you deserve.

During that, he can let you know what kind of compensation you could get for your injury. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you could recover economic as well as non-economic damages. 

Economic compensation covers medical bills, treatments, medication, rehabilitation, lost wages, and potential future income losses due to the injury. Non-economic compensation, on the other hand, addresses intangible losses such as pain, suffering, diminished quality of life, loss of enjoyment in hobbies, and loss of consortium.
