Worcester Hit and Run Accident Lawyer
About Insurance Claims For Hit-and-Run Accidents
Hit and run accident cases all involve the same common theme whereby an operator of a motor vehicle accident leaves the scene of the accident without identifying himself or herself. Ordinarily if an accident is caused by an identifiable driver who has insurance, a claim can be made against the driver’s insurance company. However, if there is no identifiable driver and insurance company to pursue a claim against, an injured person nevertheless may have rights to compensation from his or her own automobile insurance policy which provides legal compensation for this type of risk.
Massachusetts automobile insurance policies provide hit and run accident victims with rights to compensation on the basis of the policy’s uninsured motorist provisions; that is, a driver who hits and runs is considered an uninsured motorist for which an injured party’s own insurance company can be required to pay damages.
Call for advice about a Hit & Run accident
These kinds of claims can be somewhat technical to bring against one’s own insurance company. A victim of a hit and run accident, apart from reporting the matter immediately to police and getting appropriate medical care, should contact an attorney with expertise in hit and run accident investigations and uninsured motorist insurance coverage as soon as possible to protect his or her rights to compensation in a personal injury claim. Worcester Accident Attorney Peter Ventura offers a free consultation to discuss your potential hit and run and uninsured motorist claim.
