FAQ: Can I Still Receive Compensation for My Injuries?

Q: I was recently hurt in a car accident that was caused by the other driver.  Unfortunately, my auto insurance lapsed before the accident.  Can I still receive compensation for my injuries?

A: While it is unlawful in West Virginia to drive without it, not having insurance does not impact your ability to recover damages (money) from the person who caused the crash.  If the accident was the fault of the other driver, you can still file a claim with his or her insurance company.  You may be able to obtain compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, and other damages associated with the collision.  Rest assured, though, that it is not going to be easy to work with the insurance company.
