Hit-and-Run Accident Attorneys
Hit and runs are one of the most common accidents that we see and often involve claims that take an extensive investigation to resolve. This is because when someone leaves the scene, it’s difficult to locate the runner as well as proving the victim was struck.
In Texas, if you were involved in a hit and run and you are unable to locate the at-fault driver, you can make a claim against your UM/UIM insurance carrier. However, before your insurance company will pay the claim, you must prove that you were actually struck by another vehicle. If you cannot make this showing then your insurance company is not legally obligated to pay under your policy.
