Victims of Hit-and-Run Crashes in Florida Should Not Lose Hope

Accidents, unfortunately, happen all too often. A person might be safely driving, following all traffic rules, when another driver sideswipes them, T-bones them or rear-ends them. Most people in St. Augustine know that if they are in a car accident, they should stay at the scene of the crash to determine if anyone needs medical help, to exchange insurance information, and to wait for police to come, if necessary. Unfortunately, some drivers will not carry out these duties. They will cause a car crash, and then simply flee the scene of the accident, leaving the victims in a devastating situation.

It may seem like victims of hit-and-run accidents do not have many options. They do not know the name of the person who caused the crash and they’ll have no information about that driver’s auto insurance. If they’re lucky, they may remember the make and model of the vehicle that hit them, and perhaps even a license plate number or there may be witness accounts, but not much more.

However, some may be surprised to hear that even these mere details can lead police to locate the hit-and-run driver, so they can be held accountable. This way, the victims of the hit-and-run accident may be able to seek compensation from the at-fault party. In addition, it may be possible to file an uninsured motorist claim to pursue compensation.

However, a victim of a hit-and-run accident may not want to handle these matters alone. After all, one wrong move could lead to the loss of compensation that is rightfully theirs. In these situations, turning to an attorney can help. At our law firm, we have assisted clients in pursuing compensation either from their insurance company or the at-fault party. Our clients have sought compensation for various damages, including medical costs, lost wages, loss of companionship and pain and suffering.

Being the victim of a hit-and-run accident can be traumatizing, but one should not lose hope. With the right help, they may be able to seek the compensation they need to become whole again.
