Yes, the short answer is that you may still have a case in Georgia if you are injured in a car accident and don’t have insurance.
For the longer answer, please read on…
In Georgia, car insurance is not required to file a personal injury claim after a car accident. However, not having insurance may affect your ability to maximize the recovery of damages for your injuries and other losses.
In Georgia, the at-fault driver’s insurance company is typically responsible for compensating you for your damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If the at-fault driver does not have insurance or does not have enough insurance to cover your damages, you may be able to file an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim with your own insurance company if you have this coverage.

If you don’t have car insurance, you may still be able to recover damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. However, it’s important to note that Georgia follows a modified comparative negligence rule, which means that if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, your damages may be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to you.
It’s always a good idea to consult with a personal injury attorney if you’ve been injured in a car accident, regardless of whether you have insurance or not. An experienced attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options and can work to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
“It’s important to remember that the legal system can be complex, and having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side can help ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the compensation you deserve.”
