What to do if an uninsured driver is hit by another car?
Question Details: My brother was involved in an auto accident about 3 months ago; he was driving my mom's car and isn't on her insurance. He wasn't at fault he was hit from behind which lead to him bumping car in front of him.who should of he called prior to accident? My mom's car was at the body shop 3 weeks before they told my brother that the car was totaled. I don't know how else to help and find out about insurances paying who for what.
The car's owner (your mother) can sue the at-fault driver (the driver who hit your brother from behind) for all costs and losses she suffered (e.g. the then-current, as of the time of the accident, fair market value of her car) due to that person's fault. She can also try submitting a claim to that person's insurance, but if the insurer will not voluntarily pay, her only recourse to seek compensation would be to sue the driver (you sue the driver, not the insurer) and prove in court that he or she was at fault.
