Few things in life can be more frustrating than when a reckless or negligent motor vehicle operator causes a collision with your vehicle and then immediately takes off.

PIP Claims Following a Hit-and-Run Motor Vehicle Accident
Motor vehicle operators in Florida are required to carry a minimum of $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. These insurance benefits are in place to compensate victims of car accidents – regardless of who or what brought about the collision. These benefits can be used to pay a portion of the accident victim’s medical bills and/or to reimburse the accident victim for lost earnings as a result of not being able to work following the accident.
Pursuing an Uninsured Motorist Claim Following a Hit-and-Run Accident
The problem with minimal PIP benefits is that in many car accident cases, $10,000 is not nearly enough to compensate accident victims for all of the injuries which they suffered. To make matters worse, in some accidents, the at-fault driver speeds away before the drivers have an opportunity to exchange any insurance information.
Uninsured motorist insurance benefits are optional in the State of Florida. However, it is often a good idea to have these benefits in place. This is especially true if you are involved in a hit-and-run accident where your potential damages exceed $10,000.
