Why do drivers leave the scene of an accident? How can anyone do such a thing? This is far to complex to address in a blog, but some of the primary reasons are DUI, lack of insurance coverage and panicking after an accident or injuring another human being. In many cases the driver is ultimately identified through witness testimony, law enforcement investigation and available surveillance video. When the driver is apprehended, the next question from the personal injury perspective is the level of insurance they have on their vehicle.
In many cases they have little to no insurance which is one of the reasons they fled the scene of the hit and run accident in the first place. In other cases it simply isn’t possible to identify the hit and run driver. Who pays for your injuries if the hit and run driver has little to no insurance or if they cannot be identified?
HLH has represented those who are injured in Louisville and across Kentucky since 1924. As the most established personal injury law firm in Louisville, our proven trial skills and experience in uninsured or hit and run cases is why so many clients have turned to us as their attorneys for Louisville hit and run injuries.
The primary source of recovery in these cases is often your own insurance company. Most auto insurance policies have a section called “UM/UIM.” This is Underinsured Motorist and UnInsured Motorist (UM/UIM) coverage which extends to hit and run injuries – even if you are on your bicycle or simply a pedestrian in the street or in a parking lot. Unfortunately, many of our clients were shocked by the treatment they received from their own insurance company and the unfair offers they initially received.
