How You Could Recover Damages from an Uninsured Driver
It is always smart to connect with a car accident lawyer, even when both parties have insurance. If you or a loved one suffered harm in an accident with an uninsured driver, a Santa Ana uninsured car accident lawyer can be a tremendous help in recovering compensation and justice.
The most common method for recovering damages after an uninsured car accident is from your uninsured motorist coverage. Insurance policies are complex documents, and many people have a hard time understanding what is covered or how much coverage they have.
A lawyer with Ben Crump, PLLC can review your insurance and help you file, track, and manage a claim with your uninsured motorist policy.
How State Insurance Requirements Could Work in Your Favor
California offers motorists several options when it comes to insurance or financial responsibility for traffic accidents. Under California Insurance Code (INS) §11580.1b, a lawyer with our firm can help you recover damages if the other party has another form of required collateral, including:
- $35,000 cash deposit held by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)
- DMV issued self-insurance certificate
- $35,000 surety bond issued from a company licensed to do business in California
You may also have coverage in your own personal insurance that protects you from uninsured or underinsured motorists.

We Seek a Settlement on Your Behalf
In our experience, many uninsured car accident cases can be resolved outside of a courtroom. However, our attorneys will not hesitate to take your case to court if a settlement cannot be reached.
Under California Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) §335.1, you have two years from the date of injury to file a personal injury lawsuit in California. Many personal injury lawsuits are the result of stalled settlement talks, and it takes time to prepare a case for trial.
It is in your best interest for you to call the office of a Santa Ana uninsured car accident lawyer as soon as possible.
