An Appeals Court has ruled that a rental car driver who reported being in a hit-and-run collision the day after the accident occurred may recover uninsured motorist benefits, even where he did not report any injuries at the time, Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly reports.

The rental car company's insurer claimed that it received insufficient notice from the driver, since he did not report injuries until four months after the incident.

The Appeals Court disagreed, ruling that notice of the accident the day after it occurred was sufficient to satisfy the requirement in the standard auto policy.
