Many people don't realize their own automobile insurance automatically has "uninsured" coverage to provide insurance benefits when struck by a vehicle without insurance and that a hit-and-run driver who is never identified qualifies as an uninsured vehicle. Many also don't realize automobile insurance travels with you, so for example in this accident if the bicyclist has automobile insurance, it applies even though he or she was not in their automobile at the time of the accident. Issues like these and many more often come up when someone has been injured in an accident. The assistance of an experience attorney that focuses their practice exclusively on helping people injured in accidents is recommended.
