If you are injured in a car accident caused by a hit-and-run driver, you may still have the ability to obtain compensation for your personal injuries. If you have automobile insurance, it may contain coverage called uninsured motorist coverage (UM). Most insurance policies in New Jersey contain UM insurance. This insurance covers you in the event the person who caused your injuries leaves the scene of the accident and their identity is unknown. If you have UM coverage, you can sue your own insurance company in order to obtain compensation for your personal injuries. For example, if you have UM coverage in the amount of $100,000 per accident, you can sue your insurance company and make a claim for UM coverage. You will then have the ability to obtain up to $100,000 from your own insurance company for your personal injuries. It is important to hire an experienced personal injury law firm to ensure that all available insurance coverage it utilized in your case.
