Uninsured motorist got in an accident, presented expired insurance info ....?

.... so she got a ticket for causing the crash but not for being uninsured. Will the State (NC) catch up with her later to give appropriate penalty?

    Most likely they will. But it's not impossible she managed to slip the fact that it's expired past them. People are people. Maybe they didn't read it and now whatever copy they have of the info is filed somewhere where they may not look at it again to notice.

    There is no way to know.  You CAN report her to the State Attorney General.

    I'm sure the state of NC will find out the truth.  Finding the truth isn't difficult in most jurisdictions.

    But if you're wondering if driving insured / uninsured affects who is liable (legally responsible) for the damage, stop wondering.  Because it's not.

    Yes.  "She" ?  will likely be charged or has already been charged with driving uninsured.

    You .....or "she" can run but cannot hide.

    It's not impossible.

    That all depends.  Did the driver actually have insurance and simply have an expired card in the car?  Then big whoop.  Yeah, that should have been replaced, BUT if the insurance data was extracted from the card, and that's what was necessary.

      driver had card showing insurance expired a week ago, so cop didn't question it, and it turns out to have truly expired a week ago! Will the State "get back" to the driver after the fact?

    Causing a crash is probably a more serious violation than being uninsured, and the driver will not have insurance to help her pay for the damage she caused.
