If you were in an accident and you either don’t have a valid license or insurance, or both, can you still recover?
This is one of the more common questions we get. Let me begin to answer your question with a question. Because you don’t have a license or insurance, does that make it OK to injure you?
Obviously, the answer is “of course not!” Often, the status of one’s license has no outcome on a personal injury case. Not having insurance can cause you to miss out on some helpful benefits that you can carry on your own policy (medical payments, rental coverage, uninsured / underinsured coverage, etc.). However, it will not change the evaluation of your injuries and medical treatment.
