How Can a Hit and Run Accident Attorney Help?

A hit-and-run accident lawyer can help you recover compensation for your medical bills, property damage, and other losses.

Our legal team can help by:

Investigating the Accident

Our hit-and-run accident lawyers can conduct an investigation into the hit-and-run incident. 

This may involve:

Work With Law Enforcement

Our legal team will work with law enforcement to ensure that the hit-and-run accident is thoroughly investigated. Law enforcement can provide information and evidence that can help us identify the at-fault driver.

Communicate With the Insurance Company

Our hit-and-run accident lawyers can handle all communication with your insurance company and the at-fault driver’s insurer. They will negotiate with your insurance company if you have uninsured motorist coverage or they can negotiate with the at-fault driver’s insurer if they are able to identify the other motorist.

Filing a Lawsuit

A hit-and-run accident lawyer can help you file a lawsuit against the other driver, if the other driver does not have auto insurance coverage, or their insurance provider refuses to offer a fair settlement.

What Should I Do After a
Hit-and-Run Accident?

A hit-and-run accident can result in life-changing injuries. If you were involved in a hit-and-run accident, there are certain steps you must take to protect your claim, identify the negligent driver, and protect your health.

Contact Law Enforcement

Contact Law Enforcement

Report the hit-and-run to your own insurance company as soon as possible.

Speak With An Attorney

"This was my first accident ever and with that it was a 5 car pile up. I was scared and had no idea what to do. I called Ben's office to get me some help when the insurance was trying to say they didn't know who was at fault and I had to pay out of pocket."

Hit and Run Car
Accidents: Who Pays?

If the negligent driver flees the accident scene without providing their identity or insurance information, who pays for the damages can depend on the circumstances and the insurance coverage available.

Using Your Uninsured Motorist Coverage

If you have uninsured motorist coverage it may cover the damages resulting from the hit and run accident. Uninsured motorist coverage is designed to protect you when the negligent party is either uninsured or cannot be identified, as is often the case in hit and run incidents.

Filing a Claim

If you have uninsured motorist coverage, you will need to file a claim with your own insurance company. This coverage includes property damage and bodily injury coverage.

Your Collision Coverage

If you have collision coverage it can help cover the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle, regardless of who was at fault. However, collision coverage may not cover injuries.

Deductible

Using your collision coverage will require you to pay a deductible before the insurance company covers the remaining costs.

Police Report

You must report the hit and run to the police. The police report can be used as evidence for your insurance claim.

Accident Investigation

Law enforcement will conduct an accident investigation to identify and locate the hit-and-run driver. If the driver is found, their insurance may be held responsible for the damages.
