Who pays for injuries in a pedestrian hit and run accident? If you or someone you love is injured by a hit and run driver can you file a valid personal injury claim to seek compensation?
Hit and run pedestrian accidents are unfortunately relatively very common here in the greater Los Angeles and Orange County area. It is enough of a shock to be involved in a pedestrian hit and run accident, and when the driver leaves the scene it adds immeasurable pain. The victim and their family are left with many questions.
The first question is often “Who in the world could hit another person and take off?” One of the next questions you ask will be “Who pays for injuries in a pedestrian hit and run accident and how am I going to get through this?” The financial recovery for injuries from a pedestrian hit and run accident can come from many sources. The primary recover source surprises most people: your own Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist or UM/UIM coverage from you automobile insurance.
To add insult to an already difficult situation, many hit and run accident victims are shocked by how they are treated by their own insurance companies when they call to file a claim under their UM/UIM.

I represented almost all of the major insurance carriers in the first 20 years of my practice, defending their policies against these types of claims. I know their tactics and their strategies. I also am well aware of their number 1 goal: Keep the settlement paid to the injured victim at the absolute minimum.
