Too often, auto accidents, truck accidents, truck rollovers, tractor trailer accidents, and motor­cycle colli­sions on local freeways result in severe catastrophic injuries or tragic fatal­ities. Don’t let the reper­cus­sions of your auto accident, such as mounting medical bills, expensive car repairs, and an uncon­cerned insurance company get you down. If you have been hurt in a car accident, you need an experi­enced auto accident attorney  who under­stands the aggra­va­tions that result from being involved in an auto accident, and who will work to minimize your frustra­tions while maximizing your chances for a favorable settlement. A person who carelessly operates a vehicle may be required to pay for resulting damages to persons or property.

What Happens If the Other Party Is Not Insured?
