Louisiana residents need to know how to handle ahit and run situation. When a hit and run happens it is avery traumatic experience because the vehicle that collided with you vanished. If there are no cameras and there is no license plate that is immediately taking it's very difficult to locate the person who hit you. If that is the case your options need to be considered.
First, you need to determine if you were on the job or on a mission for the job to see if there's any worker's compensation benefits available.
If you were not on the job and it cannot be filed under worker's compensation you have to look at your own policy to have, and check for uninsured motorist coverage or medical payments coverage.
If that is not available your next options are to use your healthinsurance or Medicaid. Sometimes these insurancepolicies say you don't have uninsured motorist coveragewhen you should have been provided it. We need to lookat the declaration sheets and the sign of the documents tosee if you rejected uninsured motorist coverage.
