uninsured/underinsured motorist accidents Archives

What could happen in an accident with an uninsured driver?

Getting into an accident on a Washington roadway is never a pleasant experience, but it becomes even more dreadful when you learn the other driver is uninsured. Generally, when you are involved in an accident and the other driver is at fault, you can collect damages to cover medical expenses, repair bills and other associated costs. However, if the other driver is not insured, it can become difficult to collect the money rightfully owed to you.

Can law enforcement tell if you are uninsured?

If you are weighing your options and considering whether or not car insurance is a necessity, you are certainly not alone. However, driving uninsured in Washington is risky and can result in consequences that can be far more expensive than maintaining an adequate policy.
