I was in an accident while driving without insurance. Can I still be compensated?

Possibly. It is illegal to drive a motor vehicle without insurance in the state of Texas. If you are involved in an accident and do not have insurance, the police will likely give you a ticket and you may be required to pay a fine. If you were at fault for the collision, you may face a personal injury lawsuit for any damages you cause as well as potential criminal penalties depending on the unique circumstances. If the other driver caused the collision, there is a chance you may still recover compensation for some damages but you can expect the opposition to argue that you acted negligently and without regard to your legal responsibilities, reducing your eligible payout. These situations are highly complex and almost always require the expertise of a trained attorney.
