Hit and Run Accidents Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
When a driver hits another vehicle, pedestrian or bicyclist and leaves the scene of the accident, it is considered a hit-and-run accident. Not only is it against the law, but the victim of the accident may feel like they have nowhere to turn to receive compensation for their injuries. If you have been the victim of a hit-and-run accident, you need legal advice to determine your best options to cover your financial damages. Our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law is here to help, and we may be able to gain compensation for your losses.
There are many reasons a driver may flee the scene of an accident. They may have been intoxicated or under the influence of drugs and are afraid of getting caught. It is possible they were driving with a suspended license or have warrants out for their arrest. Whatever the reason, the victim of the accident needs to know that their medical costs, lost income and other expenses will be covered. If the at-fault driver cannot be located through a police investigation, there may be other options to seek compensation.
Filing an Insurance Claim for Hit and Run Accidents
One option available to an injury victim after a hit-and-run accident is to file a claim through their own insurance company. If you were driving when the accident occurred and you have coverage for collision, bodily injury, underinsured or uninsured motorist accidents, your insurance policy may cover your damages. Even if you were riding your bike or walking, you may still be able to make an insurance claim when you have uninsured motorist insurance on your auto policy. However, insurance companies are resistant to paying out for hit and run accidents, so it is best to have a personal injury attorney negotiate your settlement.
