Dallas Hit & Run Accident Attorney
Did the other driver flee the scene? Lenahan Law Firm is here to help.
If you were involved in a car accident with a driver who failed to stop and exchange information, you may be wondering what steps you can take to recover compensation. While you would typically file a claim with the at-fault driver's insurance company, this is not possible when dealing with a hit and run.
Fortunately, there are ways that a Dallas personal injury lawyer from the Lenahan Law Firm can help you to secure the level of compensation that you deserve. By filing an uninsured motorist claim with your own insurance company, you should be able to obtain financial support for the cost of your medical treatment, lost wages, therapy and rehabilitation, etc.—the amount of which will be determined by the level of uninsured motorist coverage that you have acquired.
Would it help to identify the at-fault driver?
When you have been involved in a hit and run accident, the police will typically launch an investigation to find the offending driver—since it is, after all, a crime to flee the scene of an accident. If they are able to identify the at-fault driver, you could take measures to hold them accountable for the damages that you have suffered; however, it is important to understand that most hit and run drivers make the decision to flee because they are uninsured.
For this reason, it may still be necessary for you to file an uninsured motorist claim with your own insurance company even after the offender has been caught. The fact of the matter is that nearly 10,000 hit and run accidents are reported within the city limits of Dallas each year, and very few cases are actually solved. Fortunately, Lenahan Law Firm is here to help.
