Putting Your Life Back Together After A Hit-And-Run Accident
If you have been injured in a hit-and-run crash in the Atlanta area and you don’t know what to do next, you are not alone. Most people have no idea where to turn after an at-fault driver has left the scene and hasn’t been located. The good news is that you may still have options for getting the compensation you need for medical expenses, lost income and other costs resulting from the crash.
The first step is to talk to a personal injury attorney about your situation. Call Jensen Law, LLC in Atlanta at 404-476-2441 or complete our contact form for a free consultation. We have extensive experience in these matters, and we can help you get the compensation you need after a hit-and-run accident.
One Option: Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist Coverage
Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage — also known as UM coverage — is a kind of insurance that is designed to cover the costs of a crash when the other driver doesn’t have insurance, doesn’t have enough insurance or can’t be located after a hit-and-run accident.
Many people are unaware that they actually have additional UM coverage as part of their insurance policy. Also, if someone in your household has UM coverage, it may be possible to use that coverage to help cover the costs of a crash caused by a hit-and-run driver.
In far too many cases, pedestrians are the victims of hit-and-run collisions. It may be possible in such a situation to use UM insurance to cover the costs of an injury. Please see our pedestrian accident overview to learn more.
The bottom line is that you need to know all of your options for getting the compensation you need for your injury and property damage. At Jensen Law, LLC, we can assess your specific situation, explain your options and help you start putting your life back together after a motor vehicle accident.
