A hit and run accident are accidents involving drivers that leave the scene before the police arrive and don’t provide any of their contact or insurance information. These accidents can occur either when you are driving, or when your car is left unattended while parked.
According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, approximately 11% of all reported accidents to police involve at least one driver leaving the scene of an accident. Upwards of 1,500 people die annually due to hit and run accidents. A majority of these accidents occur late at night on weekends.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is legally required in North Dakota and pays for injuries and lost wages that you or your passengers suffer if you are in an accident with an uninsured/underinsured driver who is at fault.
