Hit and run accidents include any motor vehicle collision that results in damage to another person, vehicle or property when the negligent driver flees the scene of the collision without providing information about their identity.  In most hit and run accidents, the identity of the negligent driver goes undiscovered despite any attempts to determine the negligent driver’s identity.  Nonetheless, you are still entitled to compensation for your injuries and/or damages through your own insurance policy.  Auto insurance policies include provisions that protect the policyholder in the event of a motor vehicle accident with an uninsured motorist or a hit and run driver.
