When a driver flees the scene of a motorcycle accident, victims feel like they have no option to recover compensation for medical bills, damages to their property, or other costs incurred. While a feeling of despair is natural, all hope is not lost. The motorcyclist should first call the police to report the incident to authorities. Police often uncover the individual at fault via testimony of witnesses, video surveillance, and anonymous sources. However, there are many instances where the guilty party is not apprehended. The state of Missouri requires all motorcyclists to maintain sufficient insurance to include uninsured coverage. This insurance coverage will offer you compensation for damages in the event of a hit and run motorcycle accident or if the culprit is found but carries no insurance coverage.
