If you are in a car accident and the other driver does not have insurance you should take some of the same steps as if someone did, namely document everything. Take pictures of your car, the other car and anything else that is relevant to your case. If there are people who witnessed the accident take down their testimonials or at the very least get their information so that they can be helpful in backing up your side of what happened. In addition, depending on the severity of the accident, you might need to call for medical attention or the local police. Lastly, collect as much information as you can on the driver that hit you including taking a picture of his photo idea, getting his telephone number, etc.
If you are in a car accident and the driver that hit you was not insured, you can still receive claims from your own insurance company if you have opted into an uninsured motorist clause. This policy might not be included in your standard claim and often times comes as an add-on. In
