Finding Justice with Presley & Presley Trial Attorneys

Besides it being the law in all 50 states, it is common sense that one should stop and render aid if needed after being involved in a motor vehicle accident. Yet, the number of fatalities caused by hit and run accidents increased by 60% during a seven-year period in recent years. Sometimes at-fault drivers panic and make poor choices, especially if there are fewer people around and they think they can get away with a hit and run.

Some of the most common reasons a driver will leave the accident scene include

  • Drunk Driving
  • DUI Drugs
  • No Valid Drivers’ License
  • Driving without Insurance
  • Afraid of Jailtime

What You Should DoAfter a Hit and Run Accident

Although it can be a challenge to locate a hit and run driver, there are steps that can improve the chances of holding that driver responsible for damages.  Additional to any information you or witnesses may be able to provide, there are commonly traffic cameras, dash cams and personal cellphone cameras in use that can be invaluable to your case. The more information you can provide to the police and our team, the better the authorities can track down the perpetrator. If at all possible, noting any or all of the following information regarding the car involved is helpful:

  • Color
  • Make
  • Model
  • License plate (even partial information helps)
  • Other identifiable features
  • Which direction it went after hitting you

Exploring All Your Options After a Hit and Run

While everything will be done to apprehend a hit and run driver after a serious accident, if the perpetrator cannot be found—or if he or she is uninsured—there are still options for recovering the substantial damages you have sustained through your own insurance. Uninsured and underinsured coverage exists to fill insurance gaps like those involving a hit and run. However, your insurance company may fight against your claim, try to award you a reduced settlement, or deny your claim altogether. A hit and run attorney with us specializes in putting together a strong case to ensure good faith by the insurance company so the substantial damages and losses to you and your family are rightly covered.
