Car crash and no insurance — what do I do?
I got into a car crash. I'm not at fault, but I don't have insurance. The other driver does have insurance. What are my options?
Sorry to hear about your accident. If you are not at fault, you still need to file an insurance claim through the other driver’s policy. You may be ticketed for driving with no insurance, but this will not affect your ability to get a payout from the other driver’s insurance company.
