Ask the attorney: Surgery after being sideswiped

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

I was sideswiped by another vehicle in a parking lot and the driver at fault didn't have insurance. I didn't go to the hospital the day of the accident as I didn't think I was injured since there was so little damage to my car. I did go a few days later and as it turns out I need surgery. I have uninsured motorist insurance but my own company refuses to pay.
What can I do?
