WHAT ARE HIT AND RUN VICTIM'S RIGHTS?
One of the worst parts of hit and run accidents is that the victim may be left by themselves when they are hit. Because the injured person may not get immediate medical attention, the injuries may be more severe than if they had been treated immediately. Sometimes, a person who could have survived if he or she received immediate medical attention dies due to the lack of response.
In the State of Wisconsin, there is a way for pedestrians to protect themselves in an event of being involved in a hit and run accident. According to the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance, uninsured motorist coverage can used by a pedestrian when they are injured by a hit and run driver. This coverage protects you and your family by ensuring that there are funds available to pay for your losses that were caused by someone else. The minimum amount of coverage required by law is $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident for bodily injury only.
