South Dakota / Nebraska / Wyoming
According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, the number of hit-and-run collisions is rising at an alarming rate. It is estimated that there is one hit-and-run accident every minute in the United States. These hit-and-run drivers are committing serious crimes that are leaving motorists suffering serious injuries.
If you are involved in a hit-and-run collision, all evidence should be promptly preserved, including eyewitness statements, dash cam footage, security camera footage, and police reports. Such evidence can be used to track down the hit-and-run motorist. However, the hit-and-run driver cannot always be identified. If you are involved in a hit-and-run collision, or if the other driver is uninsured, you may be able to bring an uninsured motorist claim under your vehicle insurance policy. Uninsured motorist coverage is your insurance coverage protecting you and passengers when you are involved in a hit-and-run vehicle collision or with a driver who does not have auto insurance who is at fault for a collision. In some states including South Dakota, uninsured motorist coverage is required on your purchased auto policy; in some other states it is optional.
Uninsured motorist coverage is often abbreviated “UM” on an insurance policy; sometimes called uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage, or “UMBI”; and sometimes in policies it is also referred to as uninsured/underinsured motorist protection.
If you or a passenger are injured in a hit-and-run collision or caused by an uninsured driver, a claim can be made against applicable uninsured motorist coverage for damages including, but not limited to, medical bills, future medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, permanency of injury, and other damages. Make sure you know if you have applicable uninsured motorist coverage to pursue and the full claim that can be pursued for your injuries if a hit-and-run or uninsured motorist has injured you.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or damage to their property because of an auto accident caused by another driver, you need the assistance of an auto accident lawyer. Insurance adjusters work for the insurance company and will attempt to save the insurance company as much money as possible.
Internal studies of insurance companies have shown that when an accident victim is being assisted by an attorney, the average payout is approximately three times greater than when the accident victim attempts to represent themselves.
Auto accident claims processes are difficult. But, an auto accident attorney will aid you in dealing with insurance adjusters in pursuing the full amount you are due.
When filing your auto accident claim, you will need to prove that the other driver is liable for the damages you have suffered from. Proof must also be established to show the nature and extent of your injuries, as well as the injuries that were caused by the collision. An auto accident attorney can further investigate the facts surrounding a claim, including getting testimony from witnesses, obtaining medical documentation proving your injuries, and lost income proof. An auto accident claim can involve many different aspects that you may not be familiar with. An auto accident attorney will properly file and pursue your insurance claim.
