A hit and run occurs when a driver flees the scene of an accident before providing his or her information. If the police are successful in finding the driver after the fact, he or she may face criminal charges and civil liability. Moreover, his or her insurance will be liable if the driver is at fault. However, if the other driver is not found, you will likely have to make a claim on your insurance under your uninsured driver policy. Click here for an explanation of uninsured/underinsured benefits.
