Do I have a legal case for my injuries even if I was driving a car I don’t own?
You should have a right to a legal case, even if you don’t own the car you were driving. If someone else caused the car accident, you can make a claim against that person’s insurance company for all your damages. Because cases can take a while and you may need to pay your medical bills, you might need to immediately file a claim for medical payments coverage with the owner of the car’s insurance company.
If your injuries are serious, you may need all the coverage you can get to cover your damages. Your own insurance policy may also cover you, especially in the case of an uninsured motorist. It is not uncommon that there could be more than one insurance policy needed in covering your damages. Because each policy has limits and your damages could exceed those limits, one policy may be primary and the other could be secondary or excess coverage that will kick in once the limits have been reached on the primary policy.
When dealing with multiple policies, it can get confusing. This is why it is in your best interest to hire a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer to handle your claim. This way you can rest assured knowing you will be getting the most compensation possible.
