Our thoughts and condolences are with the victim in this hit-and-run crash.
Over 250,000 people are injured in Florida car accidents each year. Some of these crashes, unfortunately, involve hit and run.
If a hit and run driver is found, their insurance policy may be responsible for payment of damages suffered by the victim. If the driver is never found, then the victim will have to look for other sources of compensation. When the victim is in a vehicle, the victim's own insurance policy may take over and pay the claim.
