When pedestirans are injured in hit and run accidents there is often the question about who is to pay for the damages to the injured party. What if one never finds the hit and run driver? Sometimes our own uninsured motorist coverage will help to pay for our own damages, including hospital bills and even pain and suffering.
The same can be true if you were injured while riding a bicycle. This is another reason why it is so important to carry liability automobile insurance. And, we shouldn't just have the minimum coverage, we need uninsured motorist coverage and underinsured motorist coverage in case we are injured by someone with no insurance or not enough insurance.
