How Can a Hit and Run Accident Attorney Help?

Hit And Run Accident Lawyer

Hit and run accidents occur when a driver involved in a collision flees the scene without offering assistance, exchanging information, or reporting the incident to the police. These accidents can leave victims in a vulnerable position, wondering how to recover compensation for their injuries and property damage. Unfortunately, this type of accident continues to occur, despite severe consequences for the fleeing driver.

At Friedland & Associates, our hit and run accident lawyers can help you pursue compensation from your insurance company by investigating the accident and proving the severity of your injuries and other damages.

Our experienced hit and run accident attorneys will immediately spring into action, working to gather evidence from the scene, witnesses, and any available surveillance footage. Securing evidence is critical in identifying the at-fault driver and building a strong case.

Our attorneys will also help by:

Pursuing Compensation

Even in a no-fault state, you have legal options to pursue compensation beyond your personal injury protection coverage. If the hit and run driver can be identified, they can be held liable for damages. Our attorneys can guide you through this complex process, ensuring your rights are protected.

Following this type of collision, accident victims may be entitled to various types of damages.

These include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages

And more.

How Can An Attorney Identify a Hit and Run Driver?

Once we take your case, our legal team will conduct an in-depth investigation to identify the negligent driver by:

Gathering Eyewitness Testimonies

Witnesses who were present at the scene of the accident can provide crucial information. Our legal team seeks out these individuals to collect detailed statements about the incident, the vehicle involved, and any other relevant details.

Analyzing Surveillance Footage

Surveillance cameras in the vicinity of the accident could have captured valuable footage. We will review any available camera recordings to identify the hit and run vehicle and its license plate, if possible.

Consulting Law Enforcement

Contacting local law enforcement is a crucial step. Police reports, even if they weren’t present at the scene, can provide essential information about the accident and initial investigations.

Examining Physical Evidence

Our hit and run attorneys conduct a thorough examination of the accident scene to gather physical evidence such as debris, skid marks, and vehicle parts. This helps reconstruct the sequence of events and establish the dynamics of the collision.

Utilizing Traffic Cameras

Traffic cameras placed at intersections or along roads can offer insights into the hit and run accident. By reviewing camera footage, we can pinpoint the moment of impact and potentially identify the fleeing vehicle.

Engaging Accident Reconstruction Experts

In complex cases, we may collaborate with accident reconstruction experts. These professionals use advanced techniques to recreate the accident and provide insights into the speed, direction, and contributing factors.

Social Media and Public Appeals

In some instances, social media platforms can be used to gather information from witnesses who may have captured photos or videos of the incident. Public appeals can encourage those with relevant information to come forward.

Accessing Nearby Businesses

Businesses in the vicinity of the accident may have surveillance footage that captured the incident. Our legal team contacts these establishments to request access to any relevant recordings.
