Virginia Beach, Virginia (VA) Car Accident Lawyers Rick Shapiro and Kevin Duffan talk about sources of insurance coverage if you or a loved one was seriously injured in a hit and run accident. This is an extremely traumatic and stressful situation. You have serious injuries and the at-fault party has vanished.
Fortunately, there is a provision in your own auto insurance policy known as Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage. This coverage kicks in if you are hit by someone who has no insurance or who has insufficient coverage for your damages. This coverage also applies when you, or a loved one, are injured in a hit and run incident. Why? Because the other driver fled and there is no insurance coverage available from the at-fault party. So, whether you're hit in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, or anywhere else in Virginia, this coverage is available.
