Coral Gables Hit and Run Accident

In Florida, it is illegal to leave the scene of a car accident where someone has been injured or killed without stopping to offer help and exchanging contact information. Despite this, many people do hit a pedestrian or other driver and leave the scene of an accident. When this happens to you, it can be terribly frightening. You may face delayed medical treatment if you cannot call for help yourself because the other person has left the scene. It may also be harder for you to get insurance money for your injuries because you cannot contact the other driver.

You do Have Options After a Hit and Run Crash

Most drivers do have uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance coverage as part of their car accident insurance. This can help you if you are ever in a hit and run car accident in Coral Gables or anywhere in Florida. Despite this, this type of coverage may not cover all the costs of your injuries. In addition, your insurance company may be reluctant pay of the total amount of money you need in order to pay for your injuries in the long term. If you've been involved in a hit and run car or truck accident in Goral Gables or anywhere in South Florida, contact the Flaxman Law Group legal team in order to get an honest evaluation of your situation and in order to get immediate legal advice.

Dealing With the Aftermath of a Car Accident

Make no mistake: A hit and run accident is a serious legal problem. Without evidence from the other driver as well as the other driver’s information, it can be difficult to get fair compensation for your injuries. In addition, when driver hits you and then leaves the scene of an accident, your injuries may be far worse because it takes you some extra time in order to get medical attention.

For all of these reasons, it is very important to pursue at-fault drivers as much as possible. Police may make an attempt at an investigation in order to find the person responsible. However, attorneys have their own teams of private investigators, accident reconstruction experts, and others who can investigate the accident and may be able to get answers that the police – with their limited resources – cannot.

By finding the at-fault driver, you may be able to pursue fair compensation. Because hit and run accidents are clearly a criminal as well as civil matter manner, you can often pursue aggressive legal action against someone who has hit you and left the scene of an accident. In these cases, you may be able to seek considerable compensation for that person's negligence.
