Your better have uninsured motorist coverage. If not, there is nothing practical that you can do. Even if you sue the other driver and get a huge judgment, you likely won’t be able to collect a dime.
Probably not, but it all depends. If you are not represented the insurer’s offer will likely be a low ball offer. Insurance companies profit by settling cheaply with claimants who don’t know what their claims are worth. There are so many factors involved. See /claim-value-duration/
My fees are contingent. If there is no recovery, there are no fees. My clients have never had to write me a check for my services in connection with personal injury claim. See /my-fees/
You shouldn’t wait to call an attorney. Insurance companies take advantage of a claimant’s lack of knowledge. Based upon our conversation, you will be in a much better position to know what you are up against and will be aware of the pitfalls.
Recovery is possible. Often there are “leash laws” in effect in various counties and cities. The claim in that instance is made against the homeowner, and would be covered by homeowners’ insurance.
Yes. There is no requirement of contact, and the lack of contact does not prevent you from making a claim against a driver.

Yes, if you have PIP (Personal Injury Protection) and UM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverages. And you really should have these coverages. They are the most important that you can buy. /insure-yourself/
