No fault - Bike Injury - Skull Fracture



From: debra
Category: Bicycle Injury


Comments

My son was a victim of hit and run while riding his bicycle at night. He did not get a license plate number or description of car. He suffered skull fracture and other injuries. Could he still put a claim into no fault insurance.

Answer:

The answer is a bit complicated. The car has fled the scene. In a situation Thus, the injured party cannot file a claim with the other driver's liability insurance and may be able to file only a hit-and-run claim with his own insurer. There's still a possibility of finding the driver through witnesses or video cameras in the neighborhood. Not all hope is lost.
