    Default How to Recover Personal Injury Damages from a Hit-and-Run Accident

    A California driver was injured in a head-on, hit-and-run accident. The other driver has not been identified, but there are plenty of witness accounts to support the conclusion that the other driver was 100% at fault, and that's what the police concluded. The driver's airbag deployed, and the driver has injuries to her head, neck, back, wrists and hands. How can she get compensation for her injuries?

    Default Re: How to Recover Personal Injury Damages from a Hit-and-Run Accident

    If the other vehicle cannot be identified, then the driver may make an uninsured motorist claim with her own insurance company, as explained here. Unless you expressly declined uninsured motorist coverage, you have the coverage under your own insurance policy.

    If the other driver is ultimately identified, the injured driver can bring an injury claim or lawsuit against that driver.
