Every 18 Minutes a Hit-and-Run Crash Occurs Making Uninsured Motorist Insurance More Critical

Analysis of accident data by the California Highway Patrol shows that a hit-and-run crash occurs in Los Angeles County every 18 minutes. According to a news report by NBC 4, an alarming 50% of all crashes in Los Angeles County are hit-and-run cases.

If you are involved in a hit-and-run crash where a driver flees the scene, you have to rely on your uninsured motorist (UM) coverage for any injuries you incur. Your UM coverage will also apply if you are struck by a hit-and-run vehicle as a pedestrian, or while riding a bicycle.

Unfortunately, as AgnewBrusavich sees time and time again, many people don’t have UM coverage, or have a small amount of coverage, and cannot cover the cost of medical expenses from a hit-and-run accident. For this reason, it is important not only to have UM coverage but to also make sure that your limits are substantial enough or at least equal to the liability limits you maintain in order to protect yourself in the event you injure someone in a car crash.
