Question:

Do I have a claim if I was injured as a pedestrian in a hit and run?

Answer:

There are cases that are harder than others. Getting by a hit and run driver as a pedestrian is one of those. The hit and run driver is gone. Typically, their identity is not found out. Sometimes it is later on, but if they’re hitting and running, they’re leaving the scene. Many times, they don’t get caught, so you lose your ability to make a claim against the driver and his insurance company.
