Can I sue an at fault driver for an auto accident if I didn't have auto insurance at the time?
Question Details: My car was totaled and the driver was also intoxicated and went to jail that night. Can I sue her for money for my lost vehicle?
Yes: not having insurance doesn't mean that you can't sue or that she does not have to pay for your damage--it just means that she does not have insurance to pay for her. That said, bear in mind that you "can't get blood from a stone" and that a court judgment in your favor does not money appear where there is none: if this woman is insolvent or impoverished or unemployed, etc., you might not get any money if you win. It's only worth suing people who have money.
Of course, a small claims case is very cheap--you risk little. So if you are suing for less than the limit for your state's small claims court, do so as your own attorney ("pro se"): you may get money, and even if don't, you only waste some of your time and a small filing fee. But if you need to hire a lawyer or can't sue in small claims (non-small claims cases can be very difficult for non-attorneys), first take a good look at this person and decide if you think she could pay if you sued her and won. If you don't think she could--and many uninsured drivers are uninsured because they can't afford insurance or don't really own anything or have any savings/assets worth insuring--it may not be worth taking legal action.
