If An Auto-Insurance Owner Has Died, Can A Car Accident Victim Still File Damages?
If you were injured in a car accident, but the at-fault driver died from the incident, you should know that you can still pursue a claim against the at-fault driver’s auto insurance provider. If your at-fault driver is based in California, they will have some form of auto insurance coverage – it is mandatory in California. You can also file for damages against the beneficiary of the deceased’s estates.
