What to Do if You’re Hit by an Uninsured Driver, Bremerton, Washington

All drivers should know how to react when they’re in an auto accident. For example, you should stay calm and check that everyone is okay. Then, move your car to a safe spot and alert the police.

The next steps, however, depend on the type of accident. Here, the collision repair specialists at your local ABRA Auto tackle one situation, in particular: uninsured drivers.

Steps to Take When Hit by an Uninsured Driver

collision repairIf you are hit by an uninsured driver, there are several things you should do while still at the scene of the accident. First, ask them to see some form of identification or ask their name. Take photos of each vehicle, noting any auto body damage that occurred. Also, record their license plate number. If you feel uncomfortable collecting this information, for any reason, then wait for law enforcement to arrive.

Having documentation will make it easier to remember specific details once it’s time to file a claim. If they prove you were not at fault for the accident, your auto insurance should cover the cost of your collision repair. Just make sure you have underinsured or uninsured coverage on your policy. If not, you may have to sue or petition for compensation.
