What if the other driver left the accident scene without stopping?
When a client has been involved in a hit and run accident, but was able to write down the license plate number of the other vehicle, I try to track down the vehicle's owner to obtain their insurance information. If I am able to get this information, the claim then proceeds as with any other type of motor vehicle accident claim.
However, if it is not possible to track down the other driver's information, or if the other driver does not have insurance, then the accident will usually fall within the client's uninsured motorist coverage - assuming that the client has this type of coverage on their auto policy. If not, it can be extremely difficult to obtain any recovery for the client.
