Hit-and-run accidents lead to serious physical injuries, overwhelming medical bills and vehicle repairs. They also bring the frustration and anger that can come with being the victim of a crime with a faceless perpetrator. Oftentimes, the perpetrator is a drunk driver or someone driving without a license. Even if the at-fault driver is later caught, he or she may not have insurance to cover your bills.
However, you may still be able to recover compensation from your own auto insurance provider. Contact Cromer Law Offices as soon as possible if you have been involved in a hit-and-run accident. Attorney Bubba Cromer will immediately begin investigating your accident to preserve evidence and build a strong case for you.
Recovering Compensation for Hit-and-Run Accidents
In order to recover compensation for a hit-and-run accident, you will need to have:
- A witness who observed the hit-and-run collision; and
- Physical evidence showing that another vehicle was involved in the accident.
The physical evidence can be as little as a part of the other vehicle’s paint on your car. Attorney Bubba Cromer will look at the physical evidence on your vehicle, take pictures and interview witnesses.
We will then bring this evidence — as well as evidence of your injury — to negotiations with your auto insurance company.
Uninsured Motorists Coverage
Most auto insurance policies cover underinsured/uninsured motorists involved in accidents with the policyholder (you). If you have this coverage and were involved in a hit-and-run accident, your auto insurance company may cover medical bills, future medical treatment/rehabilitation, and loss of income up to a certain dollar amount.
Attorney Bubba Cromer knows about hit-and-run accidents and he will review your auto insurance policy to determine whether you have uninsured motorist insurance. Then, Cromer Law Offices will fight for the compensation you deserve under that policy. If the auto insurance company does not agree to pay that amount, Attorney Bubba Cromer will take your hit-and-run case and will bring the company to court.
