Texas drivers are required by law to carry some basic form of liability coverage.
Drivers who are caught without insurance, especially at the scene of an accident, run the risk of receiving some type of punishment ranging from receiving a ticket to paying an exorbitant fine.
A car accident lawyer’s ability to protect your rights increases significantly if you have first protected yourself with appropriate insurance coverage. If you are involved in an accident and the other driver does not have insurance, there still may be options to recover money for your damages.
You may be able to seek damages from a third party, file a claim with your own insurance, or file a lawsuit against the uninsured motorist.
Whether your auto accident involved an insured or uninsured driver, you should speak with an Odessa attorney as soon as possible to examine what options are available to you.
