What Happens If You Get In An Accident Without A License

If you were recently in a car wreck and you’re not a licensed driver, you may be asking yourself what happens if you get in an accident without a license? Whether your license expired, or you never got one for whatever reason, you’ve got a problem. The good news is, as long as your license wasn’t suspended or revoked, it’s not as big a problem as you might think.

If you’ve been involved in an automobile accident without a license, call Mike Mahone, a New Orleans car accident lawyer with The Mahone Firm at (504) 564-7342 today for a free consultation.

Let’s take a look at what you need to do to make sure you get compensated for any loss or injuries.

1- Yes, you broke the law, but in the same way that speeding is breaking the law. As long as your license wasn’t suspended or revoked, you’ll likely get a ticket and pay a fine. If your license were suspended or revoked, your problems would be much worse, with more considerable penalties.

2- You need to get your license ASAP. Driving without a license is, of course, illegal. You should get your license right away.

3- Not having your license on you won’t necessarily affect your accident case. For example, if a semi-truck rammed you, that driver is still at fault, and you can collect insurance money even if you didn’t have your license when the accident happened.

4- Collect and record all of the details about the car and insurance. They include:

  • The name of the person who owns the vehicle you were driving (if not you).
  • The insurance company of the car you were driving.
  • Your exact physical address. 

These facts are vital to your case so that the right insurance companies are involved, and your rights are protected.
