Am I Entitled To Compensation For A Hit And Run Accident?

Am I Entitled To Compensation For A Hit And Run Accident? - Personal Injury Lawyer Baltimore: Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney | Eric T. Kirk - Baltimore_auto_accident_v(1)Maryland car accident lawyers are aware that every insurance policy issued in Maryland must include coverage for damages caused by unidentified motorists unless that coverage is affirmatively waived. Victims of Baltimore car accidents where the at-fault diver flees the scene must show that they have exhausted all reasonable efforts to ascertain the identity of the driver. Maryland has additionally enacted some sweeping changes to the types of coverage available to provide additional protection for motorists injured by a fleeing driver. See generally, Section 19-509.1. Enhanced underinsured motorist coverage, effective July 2018. 



The insurance policy may not spell out that obligation, but the Maryland car accident lawyers the insurance company hires to fight uninsured motorists claims are very well aware of it.

Some of the best personal injury lawyers in Baltimore have had their claims denied because of a lack of effort, or want of proof of an effort to identify the fleeing motorist.
