Yes, you can file a claim, beware they might file a report with the state, (and some states require all accidents have a report filed) you may have some trouble with the state re: you on the road without insurance. I don't know for sure if there are any states that bar recovery from another if you are on the street uninsured. You might want to check your states dept of insurance web site and see. Also (although clearly none of my business) how about getting that bike insured? :wink:

Glad to know that tcope, hate to sound like a well you know, then again, no I don't, :wink:
I agree, if you are on the road without insurance, why should you benefit even if you are not a fault? Because you frankly should not have been on the road to start with, (without insurance). You decided you didn't need the state required 'insurance' you personally didn't think it was 'necessary' or 'required of YOU'. But now you sure are glad I have it, and want a big chunk of that coverage! Please! And how I hate hearing the 'I didn't have the money to pay' we all know it is a question of priority. Now of course I think an innocent, like a poor child or unknowning passenger of an irresponisble uninsured should be protected.
