Hit-and-run accidents lead to serious physical injuries, overwhelming medical bills and car 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, they may not have insurance to cover your bills.
However, you may still be able to recover compensation from your own car insurance provider. Contact our attorneys in Columbia, SC as soon as possible if you have been involved in a hit-and-run accident. We will immediately begin investigating your accident to preserve evidence and build a strong case for you.
In order to recover compensation for a hit and run accident, you will need to have:
The physical evidence can be as little as a part of the other car's paint on your car. Our personal injury attorneys and accident investigation expert will look at the physical evidence on your car, 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.
Most car 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 car insurance company may cover medical bills, future medical treatment/rehabilitation, and loss of income up to a certain dollar amount.
We will review your car insurance policy to determine whether you have uninsured motorist insurance. Then, we will fight for the compensation you deserve under that policy. If the car insurance company does not agree to pay that amount, we will bring them to court.
