What are my rights after getting hit by an uninsured driver?

Asked by user in Florida.

Answered by Enjuris Editors:

I’m sorry this happened to you.

If you are hit by an uninsured driver, you have 2 options for recovering damages:

  1. You can file a claim with your own insurance company (assuming you purchased the optional uninsured motorist (UM) coverage), or
  2. You can file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
