A: It would depend on what information is available? Do you have a license plate? A description of the car and driver? Identifying the driver who ran into you would provide you a potential remedy other than your own UM/UIM coverage. If you are significantly injured, you might be able to also pursue the manufacturer of your vehicle if it failed to perform in the collision and such failure resulted in you suffering more severe injuries. If you would like to discuss, you are always welcome to contact my firm, DC Law, at 512-888-9999, www.texasjustice.com.
