Q:

I don’t have insurance; do I have a case?

A:

Because California laws require all drivers to be insured, it is difficult, but not impossible, for uninsured drivers to recover compensation for injuries sustained in a car accident. California’s “no pay, no play” insurance rules ban uninsured drivers from taking action to recover money for pain and suffering, and other non-economic damages.

If you have been in a motor vehicle accident and do not have insurance, contact THE POLLARD FIRM, APC. There may be a legal approach we can pursue that secures a positive result. We will explore all options that may be available to you based on your circumstances.

Q:

I’m hurt, but I can’t afford to be out of work. Can I still get paid?

A:

Most settlements include compensation for lost income. It is critical to work with a skilled attorney when negotiating with an insurance company because these businesses will offer payout settlements that do not adequately cover economic damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage.

As your advocate, we will negotiate for maximum compensation because we want you to get the settlement that you deserve.

Q:

How can I get my car fixed?

A:

If you have insurance, it’s likely that collision coverage is included in your auto insurance policy. If the vehicle damage repair costs exceed the amount allowed under your collision coverage, your insurance provider may consider your vehicle “totaled” and pay you the blue book value for your vehicle.

When you retain us, we will speak to your insurance provider about your car. As your advocate, we fight for your best interests when pursuing settlements, unlike your insurance provider.

Q:

The person who hit me is uninsured; what can I do?

A:

If the negligent driver doesn’t have car insurance, you may be able to file a claim with your own insurance company. Your collision coverage and uninsured motorist coverage can go a long way to paying for accident-related expenses. If you have “Med Pay” coverage, you may receive compensation for your medical bills.

It can be difficult to understand the benefits that your policies offer, which is why it is important to work with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney.
