Have You Been Injured by an Uninsured Driver? What Now?

Injured by an uninsured driver?

Memorial Day Weekend is here in Kentuckiana. It’s a day to remember and honor the individuals that have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It’s also a time when Kentuckians hit the open road to see family and friends. Therefore, the open roads aren’t so open with so many travelers making trips on the same weekend.

Thousands of Kentuckians are injured on Memorial Day Weekend every year because of someone else’s negligence. Many of those injuries result from car wrecks, motorcycle wrecks and truck wrecks. Unfortunately, some drivers using Kentucky roadways are uninsured. As a result, many injuries are caused by uninsured drivers.

What should you do if you are injured by an uninsured driver? Short answer. Call Stein Whatley Attorneys. The experienced car wreck lawyers at Stein Whatley Attorneys have handled many cases for their clients in which the at-fault driver was uninsured.


In most cases, the uninsured driver is criminally cited for failing to have insurance. Our experienced car wreck attorneys act on your behalf by contacting the county attorney’s office prosecuting the criminal charges. Our experienced injury lawyers will often show up at the uninsured driver’s court dates to inform the court of your injuries and gather information about the defendant.

In some cases, the cited driver ends up having insurance but did not have the information for the police officer at the time of the wreck. Our attorneys will get that information and contact the at-fault insurance carrier immediately, set up your claim, and inform the at-fault insurance company of your injuries and damages.

In other cases where the defendant is not able to produce any insurance coverage, then our attorneys work with the prosecutor. Here we want to ensure that your interest is considered when sentencing the uninsured defendant. We ask for, and our client often receives, restitution to cover their insurance deductibles from the at-fault driver as part of their sentencing.

In many instances, our clients have uninsured coverage as part of their auto insurance policy. Stein Whatley Attorneys will work diligently with your insurance company to get you compensation for injuries and damages you suffered from any uninsured motorist policy that affords you coverage.

When necessary, our experienced trial lawyers will file suit to force the at-fault individual or company to compensate you. Loses often include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and disability. Stein Whatley Attorneys will fight for you to get the compensation you deserve.

Don’t let an uninsured driver walk away leaving you to deal with the mess they created.
