Many drivers and passengers involved in hit and run accidents make the mistake of assuming they can’t file a personal injury claim because they don’t know who the other driver is. This is not actually the case, as you can make a claim under your policy’s uninsured motorist coverage. This is why we recommend that our clients pay as much as they can afford for this part of their coverage because of how common hit and run incidents are.
If you’re minimum policy is $25,000, this means you can recover damages as high as that amount. The problem with making an uninsured claim on your own insurance policy is that the company may use an adjuster to restrict the amount you can claim, or worse, outright deny you. This is where a San Antonio personal injury attorney can help your case, representing your interests in this matter.
Your lawyer’s advice will prove invaluable should your claim necessitate arbitration. Moreover, a lawyer’s expertise will prove invaluable should there be a need to conduct an investigation to firmly establish liability. If you or a loved one have been involved in a hit and run accident, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the legal team of Barrus Injury Lawyers today.
