Can I make a motor accident claim for injury if I was not licensed or my vehicle was not registered at the time of the accident?
If you were not at fault for the accident occurring, then you are not stopped from bringing a claim for your accident injuries because you were not licensed or your vehicle was not registered at the time of the accident.
You still have a claim against the driver of the vehicle at-fault for the accident occurring.
This applies even if your actions may have contributed to the accident in some way.
