Although leaving the scene of an accident is prohibited by law, some drivers may flee the scene of an accident because they do not have auto insurance or credentials to drive. Injured victims of hit and run car accident may be left with medical bills, property damage to their vehicle, and other financial losses when they cannot track down a negligent driver. Many will turn to their uninsured motorist policy to recover their financial and non-financial losses.
Of course, car insurance companies are there to reimburse their customers for accident related expenses, but, like any other insurance company, an injured party may be in for an uphill battle from their own insurer when they seek hit & run accident compensation. Insurance companies – even the one you put your trust in – will typically offer low settlements or try to deny claims entirely to protect their bottom line. Those recovering from a serious injury may not get the compensation they are entitled to without experienced legal representation.
