Unfortunately, many auto accidents in the Peoria, Arizona area include situations where the person who caused the accident does not have any insurance. This can be very frustrating, particularly when a motorist who did nothing wrong suffers a serious injury due to the negligence of the other driver. The reality is that there is no clear remedy to solve this problem. However, there is some recourse in this situation. Finding a skilled Peoria auto accident lawyer who helps personal injury victims is a vital first step.
The fact that the other driver did not present proof of insurance at the scene of the accident does not always mean that no insurance claim is possible. First of all, there is always the chance that the other driver refused to admit to being insured, but actually was. Many cases often occur in which an attorney’s investigation helps uncover insurance that helped a client pay medical bills, lost wages, and receive compensation for the injuries they suffered even when the at-fault party initially denies having any insurance at all.
Sometimes this is because the driver is intentionally uncooperative and simply does not want to admit they have insurance. Other times, they are driving a vehicle owned by somebody else and there was insurance coverage they were not aware of. Still other cases involve a driver who is working for somebody who insured the car to cover the injuries they caused to our clients. Therefore, it is not wise to assume there is absolutely no insurance coverage, and it is a good idea to hire an experienced Arizona personal injury attorney who can help in the investigation following an accident.
