Recovery Options After Fatal Hit and Run Accidents
Hit and run accidents are tragedies that can deny victims and their loved ones the opportunity for closure, accountability, and recovery.
Without an identifiable at-fault party, it can be almost impossible to make a fair and reasonable recovery for accident victims and their family members, leaving them with the pain of losing a loved one and the costs of burial and other end of life expenses.
Victims of hit and run accidents still have some options at their disposal including filing a claim against your own insurance in the event that the at fault driver is never brought to justice.
Underinsured/ uninsured motorist protection or UIM allows accident victims to recover funds from their own insurance should an accident be caused by an individual with limited or no insurance and would play a pivotal role in providing recovery for a hit and run victim.
Insurance companies may use any number of tactics to avoid paying out a major settlement after a serious injury or wrongful death accident like this, which is why it's crucial for accident victims and their loved ones to have a team of experienced pedestrian accident lawyers on their side.
