How Can I Recover Damages in a Hit-and Run Accident?

Drivers who cause injury to others as a result of their own negligence, indifference or disregard for the safety of those around them need to be held liable for their actions. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a driver who fled the scene before providing his or her contact information, you may be wondering what you should do next?

Securing legal representation from a Detroit car accident attorney can give you a distinct advantage when seeking compensation in a hit-and-run accident. I am Martindale-Hubbell® AV Preeminent® Rated and have been an unwavering advocate for victims' rights for more than 20 years. I have also recovered millions of dollars in settlements on behalf of my clients.

How can I recover damages if the driver who caused my injuries fled the scene?

It does not matter whether you are in a car accident, bicycle accident, motorcycle accident or pedestrian accident, even if the driver who caused your injuries flees the scene, there are other ways in which you can recover damages. In many cases, a hit-and-run accident victim will be able to file an insurance claim with his or her own insurance company.

Will my insurance cover my injuries and accident-related expenses?

As long as you have uninsured motorist coverage as part of your auto insurance policy, I may be able to help you recover compensation from your insurance provider for the injuries you sustained in a hit-and-run accident. Uninsured motorist coverage is intended to provide protection to innocent victims who have been injured by an uninsured driver or driver who decided to flee the scene of an accident rather than take responsibility for his or her actions. Negotiating a settlement with your insurance company without first seeking legal counsel is never recommended.

Your insurance company does not have your best interests in mind. Many insurance companies use bad faith practices to deny victims compensation they are rightfully owed. If you want real results, have an attorney on your side who is committed to protecting your interests.

Is there a way to obtain the identity of a hit-and-run driver?

Once a driver has fled the scene of an serious accident, there is no guarantee that he or she will be able to be found and held accountable for the injuries caused. On rare occasions, a witness or other individual may be able to provide information which could lead to the driver's arrest. In situations like these, the police will often appeal to the general public to assist them in indentifying the hit-and-run driver or vehicle. My firm works closely with law enforcement and I can conduct my own investigations as well, to help identify the liable driver so that you can recover the compensation you deserve.
