Pursuing Compensation In Hit-And-Run Accidents
If you are injured in a car accident or a truck accident, it should be your primary concern to seek prompt medical attention. When the negligent driver flees the scene of the accident, it is the police’s responsibility to investigate the accident and pursue the responsible driver. However, many times, it is impossible to locate the driver who caused the crash. There is still legal recourse for people injured in a hit-and-run accident.
Uninsured motorist claims: Uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage on your own policy provides supplemental insurance coverage when the at-fault driver had inadequate insurance or no insurance at all to cover the damages associated with injuries or fatalities resulting from an accident. However, uninsured motorist coverage also provides protection in claims where the at-fault driver cannot be located.
Our personal injury law firm is experienced handling various types of car accident claims that involve a hit-and-run claim:
- Pedestrian injury accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Rear end accidents
- Other motor vehicle accidents
Many people who are involved in hit-and-run accidents are unsure of their ability to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering or other damages. As a result, they may fail to seek proper medical attention — resulting in further damage or injuries that do not heal.
Rest assured, the attorneys at our AV-rated* law firm are dedicated to investigating all sources of liability to ensure our clients are properly compensated. When compensation is unavailable through negligence claims, we analyze uninsured motorist coverage and other liability, such as liability for dangerous road conditions or other factors that may have contributed to the crash.
