A: The insurance on the car you were driving covers you as a permissive user, unless you were specifically excluded. The question is what type of coverage it had. If it was liability only, then you will be covered for any liability for hitting the car in front of you. Sometimes, the person in front will claim that you hit them first, and then you were hit from behind last.

If you were insured for liability, then you can make a claim against the person who hit you for all of your medical expenses, wage loss, property damage and pain and suffering. If you were truly uninsured, then you cannot recover pain and suffering. If the person who hit you was uninsured, then you are out of luck for your recovery, unless the policy on the car carried Uninsured Motorist coverage. If so, you can make a claim against it. Talk to an attorney ASAP.

A: If you are not at fault and did not have auto insurance you can still make a claim but it is under Prop 213 for injuries, medical, loss wages and property damage. Call attorneys to help you and ask if they take Prop 213 cases.
