If you are injured in an auto accident in Wisconsin through no fault of your own, you are entitled to receive compensation for your damages from the at fault driver.  

Although Wisconsin drivers are required to maintain automobile insurance, not all Wisconsin drivers actually carry insurance. What happens if you are injured by a driver who does not have auto insurance and no personal assets to pay for your damages? How will you pay for your medical bills and associated expenses?

Fortunately, you can receive compensation for your injuries caused by an uninsured driver or a hit-and-run driver through the uninsured motorist coverage of your own automobile insurance.  

What Is Uninsured Motorist Coverage?

In Wisconsin, your automobile insurance includes uninsured motorist (UM) coverage. The uninsured motorist portion of your insurance policy applies if you, your family or other occupants in your vehicle are injured by another driver who does not have insurance or are injured by a hit-and-run driver.  Uninsured motorist coverage also applies if you or your family are injured as a pedestrian when struck by an uninsured driver or a hit-and-run driver. Under these various circumstances, you may be entitled to claim the same types of damages as you would if you filed a claim against the at fault driver, such as medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages.

What Can I Recover In An Auto Accident With An Uninsured Driver?

If you were injured by a driver without insurance, you may be able to seek compensation from your own insurance company through your uninsured motorist coverage.  You may be entitled to damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. 

Uninsured motorist cases are handled with your insurance company similar to cases where the at fault driver has insurance.   Auto insurance companies seek to limit what they pay in car accidents, even for their own injured customers. They may try to diminish the value of your case or fail to be forthcoming about your uninsured motorist benefits.

What Can I Recover In An Auto Accident With A Hit-and- Run Driver?

Sometimes the at fault driver may refuse to stop and flees the scene of the accident. If you were involved in a hit-and-run accident, it is important that you contact law enforcement right away.  

If you were injured by a hit-and-run driver, you may be able to seek compensation from your own insurance company through your uninsured motorist coverage.  You may be entitled to damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
