Can bankruptcy help me get my drivers license back that was suspended because of an accident I had while uninsured?

Yes, provided the unpaid liability is dischargeable in the bankruptcy case. Section 525 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that “a governmental unit may not deny, revoke, suspend or refuse to renew a license . . . [of] a person that is or has been a debtor . . . or has not paid a debt that is dischargeable in the case . . . . ” Therefore, filing any type of bankruptcy, including chapter 7 or chapter 13 will allow you to have your drivers license reinstated, unless the debt that caused the suspension is nondischargeable, such as a debt arising out of driving while under the influence.
