If you or a family member was the victim of a hit-in-run accident, you may be overwhelmed with car repairs and medical bills and frustrated because you can't find the at-fault driver. If you were hit by an uninsured driver, you may think there is no way to recover compensation for your losses. If you suffered a catastrophic injury, the other driver's insurance is probably not nearly enough to begin to cover your medical expenses or lost wages. Your first instinct is probably to worry about how to pay for everything. Don't worry anymore — you are not out of luck. Compensation is likely available to you under the uninsured and underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage of your own auto insurance policy.
For more than 30 years, the personal injury attorneys at Bradshaw & Bryant, PLLC have successfully represented hundreds of clients who were injured in accidents with uninsured drivers and underinsured drivers (drivers without enough insurance).

Immediately following a hit-and-run accident, police officers may conduct an investigation of the accident scene to uncover any leads to track down the other driver. They will interview witnesses to understand the cause of the accident, but often the police investigation leads them nowhere. In other cases, you know exactly who the other driver is who caused the accident. The only problem is that the other driver was driving without any insurance. If you were involved in a hit-and-run accident or hit by an uninsured driver, we can help you pursue a claim against your own insurance company for uninsured motorist (UM) benefits. While many insurance companies initially deny a claim for UM benefits, with an experienced legal team, you can likely obtain financial compensation for your damages.
Your own auto insurance policy also has underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. This insurance is designed to compensate you when you are injured in a car accident and the other driver's insurance is not enough to compensate you for your injuries, including your medical expenses, lost income, pain, suffering, and emotional distress. UIM claims are common in cases of catastrophic injury, such as spinal cord injuries, brain damage, or serious neck and back injuries.
