Q: I am uninsured and was in a car accident? What type of lawyer should I contact to help me through this process?

The cop said i was at fault but I have witnesses stating it was not. I had a arrow in the left lane and the other driver blew through the red light and also didn't have her headlights on at 8:30 p.m. I didn't see her when I started to turn and she hit me.

If you were injured you should speak with an injury lawyer. Not having insurance does not conclusively establish your negligence or fault. Having credible witnesses is very important.

Several options may be available to you. A. Try to locate the insurance on the guy that hit you, B. Check your own coverage for uninsured motorist coverage. I say definitely worth exploring if you are injured. Speak with a lawyer.

You need to hire a lawyer to investigate this. If you filed an answer with the court, there should not be a civil judgment against you. You may be able to go back in and have that judgment set aside depending on what actually happened. Bankruptcy could be another option for you.
