A: Your post appears to originate from NY, NY, but is directed to the California forum. Assuming that this collision occurred in CA, if you carried UM insurance, you can make a claim to it to cover your injuries and damage from the hit and run, including, medical expenses, pain and suffering and loss of income.

they can help you collect money by presenting a Uninsured Motorist claim against your auto policy.

this should be very easy...........don't try to do it yourself if you were injured.
