Los Angeles Hit and Run
Our thoughts go out to the victim of this hit and run crash in Los Angeles. By law, drivers are required to remain on scene following a crash. Sometimes, however, a driver attempts to evade responsibility by leaving the scene.
In these cases, eyewitness reports and physical evidence, such as vehicle damage, often lead to officers locating the vehicle later. In some cases, the hit and run driver is never located. If the driver cannot be located, the injured victim’s legal approach to the case must change.
Fortunately, most California insurance policies provide what is known as uninsured motorist coverage. With uninsured motorist, the driver is protected in the event that they are in a crash involving an uninsured driver. The same applies to a hit and run crash in which the other driver is never located. In these crashes, your uninsured coverage will kick and help pay compensation for your injuries.
