Hit and Run Accidents Lawyer
When a driver causes an accident and leaves the scene, it is called a “hit and run” accident. Not only is it against the law, but it can also cause extreme hardship for the victims harmed. If you were injured by a negligent driver who fled the scene of the vehicle accident, you may feel like you have nowhere to turn. At Race Law Firm, we can help you explore your legal options to obtain compensation to cover your injury expenses.
It can be difficult to hold a driver who caused an injury auto accident liable when they leave the scene. The first goal is to work with police to find out who the driver was by talking to witnesses, looking at camera footage and other investigative techniques. It is difficult with today’s technology for people to commit a hit and run accident and get away with it. If and when the guilty party is found, an injury accident claim can be made against them and their insurance company.
What If the Driver Is Not Found?
Even if the hit and run driver is not found, there are options to recover damages for injuries. If you were driving when you were hit by the other driver and have uninsured motorist insurance coverage, you can file a claim through your insurance. Our legal team will negotiate for you and help get the maximum payout for your injuries. Even if the driver is found, there is often a reason they left the accident scene. They could be driving without a license or insurance. If you have under-insured motorist coverage, this could cover some of your injury expenses. Let the team at Race Law Firm help you explore your options to cover medical bills, lost income and other expenses. Contact our office in Atlanta to discuss your hit and run accident claim.
