How can I claim compensation as a hit and run victim?
Those injured in hit and run accidents often fear that they won’t
be able to get any compensation following an accident where the other
driver flees. This is certainly not the case. Most importantly, you need
to call the police right away and provide them with as many details as
possible. They can then move forward with your case and seek out the individual
responsible. If caught, they will likely be prosecuted if there is adequate
evidence. In addition to criminal action, you can initiate civil action
to recover damages for your property and bodily injuries.
In the case where a driver is caught, they could be forced to:
- Pay any criminal fees and fines
- Cover the cost of your attorney
- Provide compensation for any medical bills and pain
- Compensate you for any other related damages and expenses
- Serve time in jail or on probation
- Forfeit their driving privileges, giving you peace of mind
Unfortunately, if the driver cannot be found, you will likely have to turn
to your own insurance for coverage. In most cases, you will need to file an
uninsured motorist claim, presuming your policy allows for this. If you have trouble working with
your insurance company to get the compensation and support you need during
this time, be sure to call on The Weinstein Firm, LLC. Our team of dedicated
injury attorneys in Atlanta are ready to step in on your behalf.
We are here to provide the advocacy you need to hold your insurance company
or the negligent driver accountable.
