What to Do After a Hit and Run Accident

A third phone call you will want to make immediately following your accident is to a personal injury attorney in North Miami or your community. An attorney can review your insurance policy and your insurance company’s offer. They can also help you find other options for pursuing justice:

  • Finding the at-fault driver through an investigation
  • Finding other liable parties in your case
  • Finding local resources to reduce the financial burden on you
  • Finding other options in your situation
  • Pursuing other insurance coverage options (such as homeowners insurance or property insurance) if possible
Seeking Justice After a Traffic Accident

It is important to pursue justice to the fullest extent of the law in cases involving hit and run drivers. It clearly sends the message that leaving the scene of an accident is completely unacceptable and will be persecuted. Pursuing justice is also important in order to get compensation for your injuries. In cases where your medical treatment was delayed because you could not phone for help yourself after the other driver left the scene of the accident, especially, you may have multiple expenses relating to your injuries. If you did not get help in time because of a driver’s negligence, you may have complications that could have been avoided with prompt attention.

Depending on the situation, attorneys can help you understand your rights and your options. They can help you negotiate with insurance carriers and can help you seek other sources of compensation.

If there are other liable parties other than the hit-and-run driver, and attorney may be able to pursue those avenues for compensation. If it is possible to start an investigation to find the hit-and-run driver, attorneys may work with private investigators in order to find the at fault driver and bring them to justice.
