We can fight to protect your rights and obtain compensation for you. Whether you need help with medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering, we will be by your side every step of the way.
Actions to Take Following a Hit and Run Accident
It is stressful to be involved in any type of car accident. If you are ever the victim of a hit and run accident, taking certain actions immediately after, if possible, can be very helpful to your case.
First, try to record as much information as you possibly can about the vehicle that caused the accident. Write down as many details as you can remember such as the color, make and model. Did you see the license plate number? Give as much information as you can in the police report.
If you didn’t see the other vehicle, at least make note of the time and location and anything else you think may be important to remember. Check to see if there were any witnesses to the accident. Get their names and numbers.
Handling Issues With Your Insurance Company
If it is impossible to uncover who the driver at fault in your accident was, then we may still be able to pursue your own insurance company for compensation. You can rely on our knowledge in this area to advocate for you in your time of need.
