Hit-and-run crashes can be some of the most frustrating and stressful incidents in a person’s life.
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.
