What can you do if you are in an accident with a hit-and-run driver? Will you be able to obtain compensation for your medical costs and losses? Or will you be on the hook for those expenses?
If you have uninsured motorist coverage, you can get compensation for your losses following a hit-and-run accident. This type of insurance (required in West Virginia) can even pay compensation if you are injured in a hit-and-run accident as a passenger in a vehicle driven by someone else.
But insurance companies sometimes deny uninsured motorist claims. And following a hit-and-run accident, insurance adjusters may attempt to get you to agree to a settlement that is less than what you deserve.
To ensure that your rights are protected after a hit-and-run accident, call the Manchin Injury Law Group in Fairmont at (304) 367-1862. In a free consultation, an uninsured motorist lawyer can review your case and discuss how much your claim may be worth.

If your auto insurance policy includes uninsured motorist coverage, you also have underinsured motorist coverage. As the name implies, underinsured motorist coverage can pay compensation when the liability insurance of the other driver is not sufficient to cover your losses.
