What happens if you have no insurance and are at fault in an accident?

Obviously, you can get a ticket. You also can be sued by the

victim and the victim's insurance company for damages. They will

look at your assets and see what can be liquidated to pay off the

judgment. This could bankrupt you, depending on your state's rules

for what assets you can protect from liquidation. The victim will

have an attorney who will get paid at least a third of what is

collected and has a strong motivation to get every last penny they

can from you.

Going without liability insurance is a very, very, very bad

idea, not to mention it is against the law in 49 states.
