Even though the other party may not have liability insurance, this does not mean that no insurance may be available. If you have purchased uninsured motorist coverage, a recovery is available. This insurance coverage may be available for any injury you have received. In addition, potential causes of action against parties not initially known may be available such as the Department of Transportation due to negligent road design.
It is best not to talk to an adjuster until you have had the opportunity to speak to a lawyer. Keep in mind the adjuster works for the other driver’s insurance company. Their job is to pay you no money at all or as little as possible.
Most car accident cases are settled prior to going to court. The instances when a trial is needed are when the insurance company refuses to settle for the true value of the claim.
