Getting the financial compensation that you need and deserve from a hit-and-run accident is going to be difficult, but not impossible. Your auto insurance should cover your losses and damages up to the limit on your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, but it likely won’t.
Insurance companies are notorious for minimizing and denying hit-and-run accident claims. They know evidence of a hit-and-run accident can be flimsy if you don’t have a good lawyer on your side.
It is wise to speak with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer before you seek coverage from your insurance company. Anything that you say to insurance representatives can be used against you later in the course of any legal action, and any initial coverage offer you receive from the insurance company will not add up to the compensation that you need and deserve for present and long-term costs.
Maximizing Your Deserved Compensation Takes Resourcefulness And Aggressive Advocacy
At CarluzzoRochkind& Smith, P.C., we independently investigate your claim and handle all communications with the insurance company. Our Manassas-based attorneys have successfully handled hit-and-run accident cases in Prince William County, Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C., area before. As former insurance defense attorneys, we know how insurance companies work.
Taking legal action against your insurance company for nonpayment of your claims may be necessary from the start if your claims are denied. Having a personal injury attorney advocate for your best interests and rights from the beginning can give you peace of mind, knowing that the legal burdens will be handled and all opportunities for compensation will be seized.
While you are recovering from your injuries and your legal case is pending, there are other means available to cover your medical bills and lost wages.
Maximizing your compensation will require solid legal advocacy from an experienced trial lawyer. It may be necessary to employ the services of medical experts who can testify to the full extent of your injuries.
