What should I do if I was injured in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident?


If you’ve been involved in a hit-and-run by a driver, you may not be able to identify who that driver is, if the authorities cannot find them. These days, with technology, if you can get a license plate number, it’s a lot easier to quickly obtain that information, and you will then have a punitive damages claim, in all likelihood, in addition to the liability claim. However, there could be limits on the insurance coverage, where they exclude punitive damages and they may not be responsible for paying punitive damages under the policy. It takes some experience to navigate those issues.

If you’re unable to identify the driver in a hit-and-run, then you have to start looking for alternative sources to make a recovery from, which could be complicated and require consulting with an attorney.
