Our Michigan car accident lawyers recently settled a hit and run accident claim for our client who suffered serious bone fractures and a traumatic brain injury. He was a pedestrian and was struck by an unknown car while walking to the bus stop. The police were unable to locate the driver of the vehicle.
Fortunately, our client lived with a family member who had uninsured motorists coverage in her auto insurance policy with Nationwide Insurance. Because our client's injuries were caused by an unknown driver (and therefore uninsured), we were able make his uninsured motorists claim with the insurance company. The company paid the settlement, which was full insurance policy limits, before the filing of a lawsuit.
