The car that hit me left the scene, can I still make a claim?
Unfortunately, hit and run accidents are something that we encounter all too often. Car accidents can be frightening in general, but dealing with a driver who flees the scene of an accident adds an extra layer of stress and uncertainty to the situation. If this happens to you, this does not mean your claim disappears with the driver who fled the scene. All Massachusetts drivers are required to carry Uninsured Motorist coverage on their automobile insurance policy, and in a hit and run situation, we will simply make the claim through your own insurance company. People are often concerned that making such a claim will have an adverse affect on their future insurance rates, but this is simply not the case. Being the victim of a hit and run, where the other person was at fault, will not cause your insurance rates to increase. It is useful, however, to attain an attorney who can help guide you through the situation. If you have been the victim of a hit and run, call the experienced attorneys at Altman & Altman, where we have successfully handled hundreds of these cases. We can help you get the compensation you deserve and address any questions or concerns you may have regarding the incident.
Our lawyers will discuss the details of uninsured motorist coverage in Massachusetts. People involved in accidents are often unaware that they carry this type of coverage. We will ensure you understand what coverage you have and what steps you should take in order to get compensation for your incident.

Depending on the circumstances of each case - if you were struck by an uninsured vehicle or were a victim of a hit and run accident in MA, there may be other insurance coverage available to you depending where you were living at the time of the accident and who you were living with.
