A hit and run accident occurs every minute in the United States and the most common source of recovery when the driver who caused the accident cannot be identified is your own automobile insurance. There is a portion of your coverage known as UnInsured Motorist and UnderInsured Motorist (UM/UIM). Most people are surprised to learn about this important portion of their auto insurance, and relieved to find out it covers injuries from hit and run accidents. They are also surprised to learn how difficult their own insurance company can be when they file a personal injury claim against their UM/UIM.
Insurance companies always offer a low initial settlement, and you need your own attorney to protect your rights and ensure your insurance carrier provides the full and fair settlement or verdict your case deserves.
