Getting hurt in a car accident is bad enough. Getting hurt in a car accident caused by someone without car insurance is worse. If that happens, you may wonder if there’s any financial recourse available to you. Through no fault of your own, you are hurt. Shouldn’t someone be forced to pay?
Fortunately, an uninsured car accident claim attorney may be able to help. He can help you recover damages from your insurance company through your uninsured or underinsured driver policies. This money can cover things such as medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and compensation for your pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
But you may wish to do more than just get compensation. You may want to get the uninsured vehicle owner off the road. If so, you may want to report the uninsured driver via the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration’s Uninsured Motorist Complaint Form. Maryland allows citizens who get into accidents with uninsured motorists or who just suspect that a motorist is uninsured to file a complaint with its office. The agency will get in touch with the complaining party to let the person know whether the agency can take any action against the motorist. Then, if the vehicle owner does not submit proof of insurance to the agency, the person’s vehicle registration privileges will be suspended and additional actions may be taken.
