Hit-and-run insurance claims
Many hit-and-run drivers flee the scene because they are not licensed or insured. If you have proper insurance, it should include uninsured motorist coverage to protect you in cases like these. However, your insurance company may try to offer you the lowest amount and make you pay the rest yourself. Our Milwaukee hit-and-run accident lawyers will ensure that doesn’t happen. You’ll get the maximum settlement or judgment with our experienced representation.
In most cases, uninsured motorist coverage from your own car insurance covers damages from hit and run accidents. You may be able to make a claim on your own insurance policy under:
- UMBI – Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury coverage for medical expenses
- UMPD – Uninsured Motorist Property Damage coverage for car repairs
Our Milwaukee hit and run attorneys help injured victims prove their case to insurance companies like Geico, State Farm or Progressive and get the compensation they deserve.

Injured in a hit-and-run motorcycle or bicycle accident?
If you’re hit by a car on your bike or sideswiped while on your motorcycle and the driver takes off, always report the accident. Motorcycles are less visible and more vulnerable than cars or trucks, making serious injury more likely in a crash, even when you wear the right protective gear. Even if you feel fine at the time, adrenaline can mask pain and you may not realize you’ve been injured.

Before you sign a check from an insurer, speak to an experienced personal injury attorney.
