I was caught in a wreck on the highway by a guy who had no license AT ALL and insurance was NOT under his name.
The other driver hit me from behind causing the back of my car to be completely ruined! Is there a law in Texas that specifies that the driver with no license is automically responsible for all damages?
He may be covered by the insurance even though his name is not on the insurance. If the car had insurance, he should be covered, unless he was specifically excluded. If the owner of the car knew he did not have a license, they could be liable for negligent entrustment. If he was in the course and scope of his employment, his employer will be liable for the wreck. Your insurance may cover your damages if you have UM/UIM coverage. PIP and MedPay will also provide you with some coverage. Coverage could be found even though at first it looks like he has none. Investigation needs to be done. www.sainjurylawyer.com

There are several sources for insurance that are less known to the common driver. PIP and UM/UIM may exist that would provide coverage. The driver may have sufficient assets to satisfy a judgment. A company may be responsible if the driver was in the course and scope of his employment when the accident occurred. You should speak to an attorney. Almost every personal injury attorney will provide you a free consultation, as does our firm.
