Motorcycle Hit & Run Accident
"A silver car hit my motorcycle and fled the scene, and I was injured in this hit & run accident. Do I have to pay for my own medical bills?"
Being involved and injured in an Atlanta hit & run accident is stressful. You may feel violated, overwhelmed and not know what to do - and rightfully so, because hit-and-run cases can be complicated. You will have to deal with your own insurance company after this type of crash.
Insurance companies generally do not cover all your medical expenses if you have the basic coverage; however, if you have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, then you will most likely get fully compensated for your medical bills. This is why it is important to get uninsured/underinsured coverage, so that your property damage and medical expenses will be covered in the event of a hit & run accident or a crash with a driver who is not properly insured.
It would be wise to talk with an experienced Atlanta accident attorney to discover your best options and to see if you are entitled to more compensation than what your insurance company is telling you.
