The man and his friend were eating in the bed of a pickup truck when a woman in a tan suburban struck their vehicle and fled the scene. Both men were rushed to University Hospital where one remains in critical condition.</p><strong class=”heading4″>Update: 8/25/15</strong><p>As reported by news4sanantonio.com, the hit and run driver has been found. Witnesses helped San Antonio police officers locate the suspect just blocks away from the scene of the accident. She has been charged with ‘Failure to Stop and Render Aid.’</p><strong class=”heading4″>Hit-and-Run Accidents</strong><p>When a hit-and-run accident occurs, it can leave victims not only with injuries, but with the nearly-impossible task of holding the other driver responsible. In serious cases, medical bills can be in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Without being able to recover from the other driver’s insurance company, many victims of hit-and-run accidents are victimized twice – once by the injury and again by the medical bills they get stuck with.</p><strong class=”heading4″>Who Pays for Hit-and-Run Accidents?</strong><p>In cases where the blameworthy driver is not present or does not have insurance, uninsured motorist coverage can come into play. If the injured driver has uninsured motorist coverage, that insurance may pay for any injuries sustained. Making a claim against one’s uninsured motorist policy is far more complex than the typical insurance case. An experienced attorney will investigate what type of coverage you have, make a case for recovery under any available policy, and aggressively pursue justice in your car accident case.</p><p>If you have been involved in a hit-and-run accident in San Antonio, a personal injury lawyer can help.
