What do you do if you're involved in a vehicle collision and the other driver doesn't have insurance?

If you’re involved in an accident with someone who doesn’t have insurance, you’ll want to call your insurance agent to check if you have uninsured motorist coverage. If you do, you’ll then file a claim through your own policy for your bodily injury and/or property damage expenses. If you don’t, then you’ll be on the hook for these bills.
