So I was taking my little bro. to Hooters on saturday and as I was pulling in this guy pulled out and hit me. It really screwed up my drivers side. It really didnt do anything to his car. So I decided to call the cops to get an accident report done. So today I call his insurance company and his policy has been canceled since last november. So what do I do now. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Ben

Isn't it the law to have that now?

Yeah, your uninsured motorist insurance will have to cover the damges and your insurance company will have to go after the dead beat. The court will garnish his wages so he can pay the insurance company back. If you don't have uninsured motorist insurance for some reason then you have to sue him yourself and again the courts will garnish his wages if he is found to be at fault.

I thought they had "uninsured motorist" laws everywhere now. Ask your insurance agent about that...

Well, you'll get the money either way because you were smart enough to get a police report.
