How Can I Receive Compensation If a Hit-and-Run Driver is Never Found?

Hit-and-run accidents are a crime. As such, police will investigate your crash and try to track down the person who hit you using evidence from the scene and witness testimony. Unfortunately, many hit-and-run drivers are never found. Not only does this let dangerous drivers get away with a crime, but it leaves you without someone to hold accountable for your losses.

However, there is still hope for finding compensation and recovering. If your insurance policy contains uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, you can seek compensation from your insurance company. However, you will still need to prove that your accident was caused by a hit-and-run driver and that the compensation you are requesting is needed for the scope of your losses. Success means that you will not have to bear the burden of the entire cost of a crash that was caused by someone else.

Maryland Transportation Code

According to Maryland Transportation code § 20-102, “The driver of each vehicle involved in a crash that results in bodily injury to another person immediately shall stop the vehicle as close as possible to the scene of the collision without obstructing traffic more than necessary.” This also applies to any driver who is involved in a collision that causes death. Not only is the driver required to immediately stop, but is also required to stay as long as it takes to comply with § 20-104, which refers to a driver’s duty to give information and render aid.

What is Compensation for a Hit-and-Run Accident?

Whether police have found the hit-and-run driver or you are seeking compensation from the uninsured/underinsured motorist’s portion of your auto insurance policy, you are entitled to the same types of coverage for your losses. In the wake of a hit-and-run crash, surviving victims or the loved ones of a deceased victim can seek compensation for:

  • Medical expenses, such as hospitalization, surgery, and doctor’s appointments
  • Medication for injuries, illnesses, and other complications
  • Rehabilitation for recovering from injuries and coping with disabilities
  • Lost wages due to being unable to work, either temporarily or permanently
  • Property damage, such as car repairs
  • Funeral and burial costs, lost wages, and lost benefits, in the event of a death

These include both past costs and estimations for the future, as long as you can prove what you will require in the future and how much it will cost.

Can an Attorney Help Me?

If you are the victim of a hit-and-run, you have every legal right to find representation from a lawyer. In fact, finding success in a hit-and-run case can be especially hard without the help of an attorney, since so many incidents involve at-fault drivers never being found. To learn more about how our Maryland hit-and-run lawyers can help you through a no-cost consultation, call Alpert Schreyer at 1 (844)-MDCRASH or 1 (844) 632-7274.
