Who Pays your Bills in a Hit-and-Run Car CrashIf the driver who hit you flees the scene, who is going to pay your bills? If there is no way to identify the other driver, hopefully, you can turn to your insurance. When purchasing insurance coverage, it is important to discuss this issue with your agent. Ask your insurance agent:
- How will my property damage or car repair bills be paid if I’m hit by a driver who flees the scene?
- How will my medical bills and lost wages be paid if the driver who causes the accident takes off? For more information on payment of medical bills read Who pays my Medical Bills after a Car Wreck?
- Who will cover the cost of my rental car if I’m involved in a hit-and-run crash? For more information on rental car coverage read Getting a Rental after a Car Accident.
