Our Hit and Run Attorneys Pursue Justice

We’ve all heard the phrase “hit and run.” It refers to when a driver hits either another car, a pedestrian, a bicycle, motorcycle or a parked vehicle and flees the scene without providing their contact information or, in cases involving an injured victim, rendering aid. Being the victim in a hit and run accident can be unduly frustrating because you do not know who to pursue for compensation. The hit and run lawyers at Banafshe Law Firm, PC are well versed in helping victims of hit and run accidents deal with the complications involved in such collisions and receive the compensation they are owed.

What Do I Do if I am Involved in a Hit and Run Car Accident?

There are certain things you should do if you are involved in any type of motor vehicle accident, such as call 911 if anyone is injured, obtain a copy of the police report, and obtain witness contact information. However, there are additional considerations when you are involved in a hit and run accident. 

  • Do not pursue the hit and run driver: Following the fleeing vehicle is not advisable, especially if you or another party are injured, as seeking medical attention should be your top priority. Even if you are not injured, leaving the scene may prevent you from being able to obtain important witness information.
  • Write down driver information: It is important to jot down anything you can remember about the hit and run, such as the make, model, and color of the vehicle; the license plate number; and a description of the driver.

How Do I Recover for Damages I Incurred Due to a Hit and Run Accident?

When you’ve been injured in a hit and run accident, there is no at-fault driver’s insurance to pursue for compensation of the damages you have incurred. However, it is possible that your own automobile insurance policy provides uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage in these types of situations. If you are not sure if your policy provides this type of coverage, one of our hit and run lawyers will be able to review your policy to answer any questions you may have and help determine what exactly is provided under the terms of your policy.
