IF YOU ARE INJURED DRIVING A CAR AND DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE ON THE CAR
In California, if you are injured in an automobile collision and you are the driver of a car, your damages may be limited, depending on whether there was insurance on the vehicle you were driving at the time of the collision. If you did not have insurance on the vehicle, you are entitled to recover only economic damages. You can't recover noneconomic damages such as pain ...and suffering. If you are a passenger in a vehicle that is not covered by insurance, you are entitled to economic and noneconomic damages.

You should always make sure that you have insurance on your vehicles and that any vehicle you drive is insured.
