As the Victim of a Maryland Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident, can I Hope for any Monetary Recovery to Help Pay for My Medical Bills?

Yes. Victims of Maryland hit-and-run pedestrian accidents often have some recourse even though the identity of the negligent driver may never be known. Depending on the situation, the victim of an injury-related hit-and-run pedestrian accident can often recover some damages either from his or her own automobile insurance company, assuming that the victim's policy includes uninsured/underinsured coverage.

Instances where the victim does not have auto insurance of his own — and does not live in a household where a family member has uninsured/underinsured coverage — the injured pedestrian can seek recovery from the Maryland Automobile Insurance Fund's (MAIF) Unsatisfied Claim and Judgment (UCJ) division. Depending on the circumstances, the victim may be able to receive up to $30,000 from MAIF to help pay for medical bills and other expenses resulting from the pedestrian accident.

Client Reviews
Throughout the process [of the motor vehicle collision case] you were available, responsive and up front. You were available for my questions, and my need for reassurance, and when the opportunity arose to better the outcome of my case, you did not shy away from the extra work. You have proven yourself to be an honest, realistic and caring advocate for the little guy in need. I will refer your firm to any who may be in similar need. John C.
I can't thank you enough for your efforts and dedication to resolving my case. I also want to thank you for your consistent professional manner, touched with that extra personal care that I sensed whenever we communicated. . . . You are a wonderful person and I wish you continued success. Again, thanks for everything. Hallie W.
I am proud to have had Lebowitz & Mzhen represent me in an automobile personal injury case I was involved with. Not only did they come through with a settlement worth far more than I thought possible, the entire office was always friendly, knowledgeable, and ready to answer any questions I had. Should an incident like this occur again, I will not hesitate to contact Lebowitz & Mzhen for their counsel, advice and representation, and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone seeking honest and effective attorneys.
