Many motor vehicle accidents involve circumstances where the responsible party does not stay at the accident scene. This is commonly known as a hit-and-run. Often it causes the injured party not to pursue compensation believing that there is no way to recover money as a result of a hit and run accident. This may not be true. Depending upon insurance coverage, Massachusetts automobile policies may provide what is known as uninsurance . The reason why it is called uninsurance is because the responsible party is unavailable and considered uninsured. This being so, it is important to review the Massachusetts automobile policies in both the name of the injured party as well as household members. Depending upon the circumstances, uninsurance benefits may be available to an injured party from the automobile insurance policy insuring his or her own motor vehicle or a household member’s motor vehicle even though the household member’s motor vehicle was not involved in the accident. While initially difficult to understand, this coverage may provide compensation to an injured party when the responsible party has left the scene. It is important not to assume that an injured party involved in a hit-and-run cannot seek compensation. As with any insurance issue, it is best to speak with an attorney who specializes in this area.
