If I file a claim, will it be dismissed based on my not having insurance? 3 Answers as of August 11, 2016

I was hit by a driver pulling out from a driveway into traffic. I was already traveling on the outside traffic lane. I did not have insurance at the time of accident. I have since obtained insurance. Other party did have insurance. Other party mentioned he would prefer handling accident outside of insurance. No police report taken at time. What legal issues can I face if I was to request a police report now?

Even without insurance, you can collect property damage, rental car expenses, medical bills, and loss of wages because of injury, you just can not collect for pain and suffering. The police probably would not issue a report now because they have no information what happened. You do not need a police report to prove your case.
