What Should You Do as a Victim in a Hit-and-Run Crash?
If you live in California, you can expect to see at least 14,000-20,000 hit-and-run incidents each year. You can be one of those injured from one of these incidents. Hit-and-run crashes are one of the most stressful to experience because you can’t pursue any claims against the person who is at fault. Thus, most of the expenses that you’ll face will need to come from your own pocket. However, you should know that you can use your medical insurance to pay for any medical treatment you need as a hit-and-run victim. Additionally, if you live in California, claiming medical treatment for hit-and-run injuries will not cause your premium to increase.
