Most Connecticut victims of hit and run accidents assume that because the person who caused the accident cannot be located that they will not be able to recover money damages for their injuries, some of which can be very serious. There are sources of compensation which may be available to you that could lead to a large financial recovery. Let our experienced personal injury and accident attorneys explain your rights to you and determine what sources of insurance coverage are available to compensate you for your injuries. It is important that you contact us at the earliest possible moment so that a timely investigation can be conducted into the facts of your case.
If you have been injured in a hit and run accident where the driver of the at fault vehicle is later arrested by the police or if the driver cannot be located you have the ability to access certain coverage under your own motor vehicle insurance policy. Every motor vehicle owner in the state of Connecticut is required to carry, as part of their standard insurance policy, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage is like buying insurance protection for all other drivers on the road. You may even be able to access the insurance coverage of certain family members that might provide you with the ability to get additional monies for your injuries.
If the at fault driver cannot be located, or is later arrested but has no insurance coverage, then you can obtain compensation for your injuries by accessing your, or certain family members', uninsured motorist coverage. If the at fault party is later located and does not have enough insurance to compensate you for your injuries then you might be able to access your insurance policy, or certain family members', insurance policies for underinsured motorist coverage.
