Hit by a car in Iowa? You have options to pursue

Have you been injured in a car accident in Iowa or been a victim of a hit-and-run accident where you've been able to track down the person who hurt you? In that case, you should be able to claim compensation against the person who harmed you. What about if you can't find that driver, though? You still have options that you can pursue in some cases.

Your personal insurance provides a way for you to obtain compensation even if that dangerous driver is never found. If you carry uninsured motorist insurance, it's designed to take care of you in that exact situation. In your case, you'll need to prove that the accident took place and that finding the driver isn't likely. You may have to support your claim that you were hit by a car with evidence and investigation notes that the insurance company can review.

When you're trying to obtain money from your uninsured motorist insurance, you need to have the support of someone who knows your rights. You will need to know how much money you need by calculating your losses and what you need to get back to your life. In settlement arrangements, you may need to negotiate to get the amount of money you want.

Whether you were a pedestrian, bicyclist, or motorist who was struck by a hit-and-run driver, you should have the right to seek compensation for your pain and suffering. If the driver is caught, you may be compensated by them for your injuries, but if not, you do have other options you can pursue. You don't have to suffer financially due to their negligence.
