What a Hit and Run Actually Means
Every driver in Colorado has a responsibility to remain at the scene of an accident until law enforcement officials arrive, with few exceptions. Individuals can move a small distance if leaving the cars where they are would obstruct traffic or create a significant hazard, and individuals can leave the scene if they have been badly injured and need immediate medical care.
However, there are times when individuals flee the scene of an incident for various reasons. Leaving the scene of an accident could lead to criminal charges, and this can also make it very difficult for individuals harmed to recover compensation. Sometimes individuals flee the scene because they are in shock about the incident, but other times individuals leave the scene of the accident because they do not have insurance or even because they have outstanding criminal warrants.
Regardless of the reason for leaving the scene of an accident, those left behind can struggle to recover the compensation they need.
Can You Recover Compensation After a Hit and Run in Denver?
Individuals may be able to recover various types of compensation after a hit-and-run accident occurs. If injury victims carry uninsured motorist coverage as part of their insurance policy, then they can turn to their own insurance carrier to recover partial compensation for their losses. However, uninsured motorist coverage is not required in Colorado.
If a hit-and-run driver is apprehended or turns themselves in, it may be possible to file a claim against the hit-and-run driver’s insurance carrier, but this will not be an option if they do not have insurance. It may be possible to file a civil personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
The ultimate goal is to recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Property damage expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Pain and suffering damages
