My fiance did not have insurance on the particular motorcycle that we were riding (this is not illegal in WA state, but we will never make that mistake again and will get UM insurance) and so his auto insurance will not take our case. My medical insurance will pay for my injuries alone, and not his and my fiance does not have medical insurance. I was released the same day, he had to stay overnight in the hospital for injuries, and our bike was totaled. A police report was filed, all witnesses agreed that the car driver was completely at fault. Our bills total much more than the small claims court limit of $5,000, and no lawyer will take our case "because he likely has no money if he was uninsured". Can we sue individually in small claims ($10,000 total)? Where can we go from here?
