A hit and run accident is a lot like getting into a crash with an uninsured driver. It means you’re stuck holding the bill. Hit and run drivers usually take off because they either don’t have insurance or don’t want to deal with the police. These crashes are often severe and leave victims with a lot of medical and repair bills.
Types of Hit and Run Accidents
Most people think of hit and run accidents as between two cars, but it’s common for these drivers to hit bicyclists, motorcyclists, and pedestrians before running from the scene. Another form of hit and run is the “phantom vehicle.” That means a driver who forces you off the road or causes you to crash your car without actually hitting you.
