Your Options if the Other Driver Does Not Have Auto Insurance
The state of Indiana follows a standard fault-based policy that establishes who is liable for damages after a motorcycle accident. Therefore, the driver that caused the accident is responsible for all harm that they caused you. However, if the other driver is uninsured, you may have to look at other options for recovering your losses such as:
Turn to Your Uninsured Motorist Coverage
In Indiana, all insurance policies must include uninsured motorist coverage (UIM) that is equal to or higher than the minimum coverage amounts listed above. If you have this type of coverage, you may use it to recover your damages. You can claim damages such as medical costs, lost pay, or pain and suffering.
You May Be Able to Sue the Other Driver
Your insurance policy may have coverage limits. However, motorcycle accidents can cause catastrophic injuries. They can lead to high medical bills that exceed your policy limits. One option you may have is to file a lawsuit against the uninsured driver for the remainder of your damages.
You Might Be Able to File for Disability
If you were disabled as a result of the accident, you may also have the option to file for federal or state disability. While disability will likely not cover all of your expenses, it can help pay your daily living costs and a portion of your damages.
