Hi my name is Curt Runger and I’m an attorney in Memphis, Tennessee and I help my clients recover money damages. When they are involved in car or trucking accident cases. One of the biggest myths that is out there in the general public is this. I was in a car wreck. The other person who hit me and who was at fault did not have automobile insurance and therefore I’m just totally screwed and I cannot recover for my personal injuries. That is not always the case that is a myth, in a lot of situations. So, if this happened to you. Let’s say you’re driving down the street. On a sunny Saturday afternoon mine you’re in business, and some negligent driver who’s not paying attention to what they’re doing slammed into the back of your car, you get out survey the damage. Call the police, and then find out that this Yahoo did not have car insurance, but you’re hurt. That does not necessarily mean that you are without recourse. So, in Tennessee. If you have what’s called uninsured motorist coverage or under uninsured motorist coverage is typically referred to as you I am coverage, then you can still recover for your medical bills and pain and suffering that you sustained in a wreck. Even though the person who hit you didn’t have insurance and they were at fault. So that’s a myth.
