According to the Florida Highway Patrol, hit and run accidents in Florida increased by 23 percent in 2014. There were 80,000 hit and run accidents last year, and almost half involved pedestrians.
In Florida, though drivers must have car insurance to obtain a driver’s license, once they have the license they can stop coverage, and without insurance drivers are more tempted to run from the scene of an accident. For pedestrians and drivers who are victims of hit and run accidents, this is a terrifying thought. Just because someone flees the scene or doesn’t have insurance though, doesn’t mean you can’t get the settlement you deserve.
