A hit and run accident can be devastating for both victims and their family. Victims may have to deal with medical bills, lost wages and damaged property, just to name a few.
While most hit-and-run accidents involve pedestrians and bicycles, they are also common in motorcycle, truck, and car accidents. Fleeing the scene of an accident is illegal in Georgia and can lead to severe financial and legal complications.
For the victim, seeking compensation for hit-and-run accidents can be an extremely complex process, and it’s extremely risky to depend on people to make you whole. Because of this, it’s critical to have underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage for these types of accidents.
When a hit and run takes place, private investigators and/or police will first try to find the runaway driver. However, if they cannot find the driver, you may have to seek compensation from your uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance coverage.
If you have no insurance policy, you still have options. You could make a claim through the policy of a family member living with you. Or, if you were in the vehicle that was hit, you could make a claim on the coverage of the driver.
