If someone has been the victim of a Connecticut hit and run accident, many times they are concerned that they are not going to be able to get compensated for their injuries because the police could not locate the driver of the car that hit them. If the police do not find the driver of the vehicle that hit you and caused your injuries, then you can turn to the uninsured motorist provision of your motor vehicle insurance policy, or in certain cases any resident member of your household. You should contact an experienced Connecticut personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your Connecticut hit and run accident so that a lawyer can be involved in the development of your case and determine what type of insurance coverage there is available to you. These types of cases present an interesting twist in that you are not going against the insurance company of the at fault driver but rather you are filing a claim against your own insurance company who steps into the shoes of the driver that could not be located.
A Connecticut uninsured motorist case presents an interesting number of issues which are very different from a case involving a claim against a third-party. The chances that you will make a mistake in attempting to represent yourself in this type of the Connecticut accident case are increased because of the fact that you have a duty to cooperate with your own insurance company which you would not have if you were dealing with a third party's insurance company. You should not attempt to represent yourself in a Connecticut uninsured motorist case until you first speak with an experienced Connecticut personal injury lawyer.
