Best Answer

If you have uninsured motorist coverage on your own insurance policy, your insurance will assist you. Often, your insurance will pay your damages and then it will file a civil suit against the other driver to get reimbursed.

Also, you can sue the driver individually for the damage. However, many people who are uninsured are in that position because they can't afford insurance, and therefore you may get a judgment that the defendant cannot or will not ever pay.
