Handling a Hit-And-Run
Motorcyclists facing hit-and-run accidents can explore receiving compensation through their uninsured driver insurance coverage, which is designed to protect individuals when the at-fault party is unidentified or lacks insurance.
On the other hand, if the hit-and-run driver is apprehended, motorcyclists have the legal right to bring forth a personal injury claim against the responsible party. A personal injury claim allows victims to seek compensation for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related costs resulting from the accident.
Considering the complexity of legal options available to motorcyclists in hit-and-run scenarios, an experienced accident attorney can help guide individuals through the process, assess the case’s specifics, and determine the most appropriate course of action.
