What Is a Hit & Run Accident?
A hit-and-run accident is a type of motor vehicle collision where one party involved in the crash leaves the scene without providing their contact information, failing to offer assistance to injured individuals, or neglecting to report the accident to law enforcement. In such cases, the responsible driver flees the scene before fulfilling their legal obligations, leaving victims behind without the necessary information or aid.
Typically, when an accident occurs, drivers involved are required by law to stop immediately, exchange insurance and contact information, and render aid if anyone is injured. They must also report the accident to the police, providing details of the incident. However, in hit-and-run accidents, one or more parties involved fail to adhere to these responsibilities and leave the scene, often making it challenging to determine the at-fault driver's identity and hold them accountable.
Hit-and-run accidents can involve various types of vehicles, including cars, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. They can occur on public roads, highways, parking lots, or even private property. While the severity of hit-and-run accidents varies, they can lead to serious consequences, such as property damage, bodily injuries, or even fatalities.
Why You Need a Hit & Run Accident Lawyer
Hit-and-run accidents can be particularly challenging for victims seeking justice and compensation. When a negligent driver flees the scene, the process of identifying and holding the responsible party accountable becomes more complex. However, having an experienced hit-and-run accident lawyer by your side can significantly increase your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome.
Here's why you need our expertise:
- Investigation and Evidence Gathering: Our team of skilled attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to gather evidence from the accident scene, witness testimonies, surveillance footage, and any available forensic data. This crucial step helps build a compelling case to identify the at-fault driver.
- Navigating Complex Laws: Hit-and-run accident cases involve intricate legal issues, varying from state to state. Our nationwide presence equips us with extensive knowledge of state-specific laws, allowing us to navigate the complexities and nuances of each jurisdiction.
- Dealing with Insurance Companies: Insurance companies may attempt to limit their liability and offer insufficient settlements. Our lawyers are adept at negotiating with insurance companies to ensure you receive fair compensation for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
- Statute of Limitations: Every state imposes a specific time limit within which legal action must be taken. Our attorneys are well-versed in these statutes of limitations, ensuring that your case is filed promptly, preserving your right to pursue compensation.
If you were involved in a hit-and-run accident, you may be able to seek compensation from the driver's insurance company even if they left the scene of the accident. Our team at Mike Slocumb Law Firm can help you gather evidence that can help prove the driver who hit you was at fault for the accident.
