Q: What happens when you get into an accident without insurance due to a contract dispute?

I’m now getting a letter saying if I don’t respond within 30 days they will mail me a judgement.

A: This is something a North Carolina attorney should advise on, but your post remains open for two weeks and the clock is ticking on your window for a timely response/appearance. It isn't fully clear what the contract dispute means (dispute with your carrier as to policy being in effect, contract dispute as to a workplace providing coverage for commercial usage, etc.), but that is less important at this point. Whatever the case may be, you should consider contacting a North Carolina attorney with the paperwork you received, whether it is a summons and complaint, demand letter, etc. The worst thing to do would be to take no action, where that could possibly result in a default judgment (easy win for the other side based on a no-show). Seriously consider contacting a North Carolina attorney without further delay to discuss this and figure out your game plan in responding. Good luck
