When you are injured by a hit and run driver and the driver is not able to be identified, then your own car insurance company will bear the financial responsibility. The recovery mechanism depends on whether you live in a fault or no-fault state.


If you live in Tennessee, then you can receive compensation from your insurance carrier by filing an uninsured motorist claim, as Tennessee is a ‘fault’ state. This kind of system focuses on determining who is legally liable for causing the car wreck, and makes it the responsibility of the at-fault parties to pay for losses associated with the crash.

What is Uninsured Motorist Coverage?

Uninsured motorist coverage (UM) is a mandatory insurance coverage in Tennessee that provides coverage when the at-fault driver has insufficient or is without insurance coverage. Uninsured motorist coverage also covers hit-and-run drivers, since the driver is unknown and thus cannot be located to determine insurance coverage. UM coverage will cover your damages suffered as a result of the accident.
