Even without the insurance coverage issue, you should get your own attorney because you were injured. Do not speak with the insurance adjuster; certainly do not give a written or recorded statement. Most personal injury attorneys will give you a case evaluation at no charge.

I was in a car accident 12/17 that resulted in neck and back pain. I went to the ER and multiple dr visits such as PT, chiropractor, neurologist for neck and back injections. My medical lien is 953$ and my car damages were 4500$. I was in a car accident back in 2012 with similar symptoms also.
If party #2 was also negligent, he is responsible for his percentage of non-economic damages (pain and suffering), and 100% of economic damages (property damage, wage loss, medical expenses (past & future)).
If at a traffic light there are two cars on opposite sides of the street both making left turns and a car from behind one of the turning cars decided to go around and then hits the turning car from the opposite side of the road who would be at fault for the accident.
The car from behind would have most, if not all of the fault, assuming everyone agreed on the facts as described. The car turning left from the opposite side may also have some fault as it could have had a clear view of the oncoming vehicle and might have been able to yield to avoid the collision.
Lack of insurance has nothing to do with who is at fault. If the other party is at fault, lack of insurance will only affect your ability to recover pain and suffering damages if you pursue a personal injury claim. You will only be able to recover economic damages (medical expenses, property...Read more »
