I was in a car accident about three years ago. I had full coverage including everything except medical. The person that hit me fled the scene. I had an eyewitness and my car was totaled. The car insurance paid for the damages, but I was unaware that I could file a claim with my insurance company under the insurance I had. I had comprehensive, collision, property damage liability as well as bodily injury liability including uninsured motorists no offsett. That included bodily injury as well as property. I read that in the state of Georgia, you have up to four years to file a claim on the case. Is this worth me filing a claim knowing that the insurance company should have paid more due to the hit and run?I am asking this question because I was in a similar accident recently. When I was told that I could file a claim against my insurance company (due to the other car left the scene). I contacted a lawyer about this claim and I have yet to ask him. I want to know if I could file a claim on the 2006 accident because both accidents were the same. Both persons left the scene and I was not at fault due to my insurance company investigation, my witnesses, and proof that I did not cause it. Please help someone :-(
