How do I get pain and suffering from an uninsured motorist?
Question Details: I was in an accident last week. The other driver was at fault and received two tickets for not stopping at a stop sign and not having insurance. The car i was driving was totaled. I was taken by ambulance to an ER where they stapled my head 7 times and gave me an ultra sound. I then had a follow up appointment where I was given a brace for a carpel tunnel fracture and sprained wrist, medication for swelling for my face, and medicine for the contusion in my thigh. The car I was driving was my moms car and she had uninsured motorist coverage so she was able to get a new car. However, since the other driver was uninsured, I will now have to pay my medical bills Including future visits for check-ups, staple removal, therapy for my leg. I also missed multiple days of work and haven't been able to get behind the wheel of a car. Could I sue her for my medical bills and for pain and suffering?
