What do I do if I’m injured in a hit and run?

In the instance the driver or owner of the car at fault can’t be identified, you can make a claim against the CTP’s Nominal Defendant.

But if they are identified, they may be personally liable for damages or injuries incurred.

Generally, no insurance will be available to them if they’re involved in an illegal act, which can make recovering the funds from the driver difficult if they have no financial assets.
