WILL YOUR INSURANCE COVER A HIT-AND-RUN?
If the police could identify the guilty party, then your insurance company may help pay for the damages. Meaning, their liability coverage is not an option.
It is very important to make sure you have the protection you need.
These are coverage options that can help guarantee you are protected:
Uninsured and underinsured motorist property damage:
This kind of coverage will pay to repair or replace your vehicle if you are hit by someone that has limited or no insurance coverage. Meaning, it could also cover unidentified drivers involved in a hit-and-run accident.
After all, availability will vary state by state. Even still, some states do not even offer either kind of coverage.
In states like North Carolina and West Virginia, it is not obligatory to have uninsured motorist or property damage coverage. However, talk to an insurance agent about how things work where you live.
There are states where coverage is not even available. Still, optional collision coverage can cover damage caused by a hit-and-run driver.
Collision coverage will help you with covering the cost of repairing or replacing your car if you have been in a collision. Also, this type of coverage will include a hit-and-run accident.
Moreover, when you use this kind of coverage, most drivers will pay a deductible. Additionally, this is a “fixed amount” specified in the wording your policy.
- Uninsured and underinsured motorist bodily injury protection:
This is a lot like property damage coverage. This type of coverage can help to pay for injuries that you and your passengers get.
Being hit by someone who leaves the scene is known as a hit-and-run. Moreover, if identified, offending drivers can end up paying for medical costs, lost income as well as pain and suffering.
This kind of coverage is mandatory. Subsequently, it is not always the same in some states.
Still, there are states like New York that are considered “no-fault states”. This means that drivers who are involved in an accident can file a claim with their insurance company no matter who is at fault.
Consequently, no matter what state you live in, you should at least have uninsured and underinsured coverage.
