Hit and Run Accidents & Uninsured Motorist Accidents
Hit and Run Accidents / Uninsured Motorist Accidents – If you have been injured in an accident where the other driver leaves the scene and cannot be found, or does not have insurance, your insurance company is supposed to step in and cover your losses from your injury just as if your company insured that person.
In hit-and-run accidents, the accident must be reported to the police and your insurance company. A witness or physical proof that another driver is the cause of the collision is critical. What if you didn’t report your accident promptly?
Should you give a recorded statement to your insurance company? What if your insurance company wants to send you to one of their doctors? What if the insurer is offering to settle your claim even though you are still being treated?
Most people think that you will be treated better by your own insurance company. This unfortunately is not true. Whether it’s your insurance company or someone else’s, the adjuster is looking out for the interest of the insurance company.
What if the person who caused the collision has insurance, but not enough to cover all of your medical bills, wage loss, your discomfort, and the disruption of your life? You may be able to make an “underinsured” motorist claim through your own insurance, but particular steps must be taken to preserve your claim.
