Hit & Run Car Accident
"My daughter was hit by a car that fled the scene. Since we don't know the driver, who is responsible for paying her medical bills after this Atlanta hit-and-run accident?"
We are sorry to hear that your daughter was injured. Atlanta hit-and-run accidents can be very confusing and complicated for the person who is injured and for the individual's family. If the driver who hit your daughter cannot be found, then your daughter may have to file an insurance claim with her own insurance policy, even though she was not at fault.
Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage should cover your daughter's compensation. However, if she does not have this type of insurance coverage, then her insurance company will probably not pay for her medical bills unless she accepts liability and files a claim under her own collision coverage. We know this isn't fair, as your daughter is the victim.
If your daughter's insurance company is not providing compensation for her injuries, please call us so we can talk to you about your situation. There may be other avenues we can help you pursue. Contact Kalka & Baer LLC to schedule your free legal consultation today.
