Just got into an accident, I have no license and found out that the car has no insurance. Am I completely at fault ?

Reading, PA |

I was driving when i saw a car slowly stoping ahead of me. As soon as I saw he was coming to a complete stop, I dicided to move to my right right lane so I can keep on going and not come to a complete stop my self. I look at my mirrors and so no car coming upon my right side but a big white cargo truck still very far away, that's when I decided to quickly signal and change lanes. Once I did so I noticed that there were actually two cars in front of me on the left lane. As I was passing them I stepped on the gas a ill more because of the white truck that was approaching. That's when the car "apperently behind me" rear ended me. I was in utter shock and had no idea where this car came from. The thing is that I have no licence and the car has no insurance. Am I completely at fault here?

  4. You may be at fault for changing lanes without being aware of all cars on the road. Also, the car owner may also be liable for damages. However, since you were hit from behind, get an attorney in Reading to advise you, especially if you suffered any injuries. Best of luck.
