As always, we will post our articles on our website as they are sent out in the Settle-It-Yourself Newsletter. Our readers will have a rich resource available to them, our hands-on battles with the insurance companies translate into useful and accurate information for our readers.


Uninsured Motorist Coverage (UIM) Hit and Run or Phantom Vehicle Insurance Claims

Did you know that you could be run or bumped off the freeway by another driver and never recover a dime for lifetime pain and suffering disabling injuries? Unless there is evidence of a collision between the two vehicles (i.e. damage to your car), there is an EXCELLENT CHANCE that your own insurance company will never have to pay you one dime in general damages (pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, etc.)

The reason is because you have to have independent corroborating evidence to prove that some speeding lane-changer bumped you or caused you to lose control and crash. Who can get the license and make and color of a car that swerved in front of you at night?

Six Ways to Prove That Your Car Accident Was Caused By a Phantom Car

These are based upon successful court-approved methods of proving the phantom car claim. We cannot guarantee that they will work in your state, however, since we have no idea whether you live in a politically conservative or a progressive state (the former being less likely to accept these proofs, but the latter being more likely to accept these proofs).

1. At the Accident Scene:

Ask everyone who shows up if they saw the phantom car.

2. First Interview With Paramedics and/or Admission to Hospital, or Upon First Visit to Your Doctor:

They always ask what happened, so let them know about the phantom car that caused the accident.

3. Report to Police ASAP and Upon First Interview With Police or Patrol:

Talk about the phantom vehicle and how it caused the accident.

4. Examine Your Vehicle Carefully for ANY Evidence of Contact From the Phantom Vehicle

5. Passengers Can be Disinterested Party to Prove Phantom Vehicle:

Have your passenger(s) be the credible third party by having them sign a release and waiver of all UIM insurance benefits from your company, a release of the phantom driver, and a release of you.

This frees them up from being named a party with an interest in the UIM claim. Hence, they can be witnesses to corroborate your statement regarding the phantom vehicle.

6. Report to Your Own Insurance Company With Description of How Phantom Vehicle Caused the Accident

They will ask you how it happened and you will tell about the phantom car. Go ahead and give a recorded statement to them in this instance.
