    Answered . You will probably have to sue the adverse driver personally in the appropriate court. It is a bad idea to drive without having uninsured motorist coverage, as many people do not obey the law and do not carry the needed liability coverage.

    For the future, I suggest that you sit down with an independent insurance agent and review your coverages and obtain protection for you and your family.
