Hit And Run Accidents: Don’t Bear The Burden Alone
A “hit and run” accident is a failure on the part of a driver to stop, render aid and accept responsibility for his or her part in an vehicle accident. Sometimes, when careless drivers cause harm to others, they flee the scene of the crime. But accident victims are still entitled to financial compensation for the losses they have suffered. If you or someone close to you has been injured in a hit-and-run accident, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to explore your legal options.
At Becker, Kellogg & Berry, P.C., we help people who have been injured and lost loved ones obtain maximum compensation in serious hit-and-run car accidents in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. We have extensive experience handling these types of cases and a long track record of success winning results for accident injury victims.
Helping Hit-And-Run Accident Victims
Hit and run accidents can occur for a number of reasons. In some cases, the careless driver fails to notice the accident occurred. In others, he or she is driving illegally (without insurance coverage, for instance) and does not want to get caught. Sometimes, drunk driving is involved. In any case, accident victims are left with a difficult question: Who will pay for the damage that has been done to me? We can help you answer that question.
Often, the hit-and-run driver can be found. We will search for eyewitnesses, video surveillance footage and other evidence that help us identify and locate the negligent party. If unable to do so, we can help you pursue compensation from your own uninsured motorist coverage or file an underinsured motorist claim. We are well-versed in the legal and insurance issues that come into play in hit-and-run car accident cases and are prepared to help you obtain full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.
