If you have driven in California, you know how dangerous the roads and freeways can be. Negligent and careless drivers cause accidents daily. Because of this, California law requires every driver to carry car insurance. The insurance is required, in part, to provide compensation for injuries and damages incurred as a result of negligence or mistakes made by the driver.

While the law requires drivers to carry insurance, a 2013 research study done by the California Department of Insurance found that 25% of motorists are uninsured. Further, 14% of car accidents are caused by uninsured motorists. Due to this, we strongly recommend that drivers purchase both uninsured and underinsured motorist covered through your insurance provider. It is important to be sure you and your loved ones are protected in the event of an accident.

What Should I Do If I’ve Been Injured by an Uninsured Motorist?

If you have been injured by an uninsured driver, the attorneys at Gentry & Ashton Law are ready to help you. We recommend you take the following steps:
  • CALL THE POLICE: Call the police to the scene as it is important to get a police report of the incident.
  • OBTAIN THE DRIVER’S INFORMATION: Make sure you get any person involved in the accident’s information. Be sure to write down their license plate number, contact number, address, and driver’s license number.
  • DOCUMENT PROPERTY DAMAGE AND INJURIES: The best record of damages and injuries are photographs. If you can, take numerous pictures of any cars involved, any damage present on any of the cars involved, and any injuries you have incurred.
  • SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION: See your doctor as soon as possible. Make sure all injuries are documented, no matter how minor they might seem.
  • CONSULT AN ATTORNEY: Once you have seen the doctor, your next step is to call an accident attorney. We can help you determine what your next actions will be.
