Florida Hit-And-Run Accident Lawyers
Hit-and-run accidents are even more difficult on victims than typical car crashes. Not only are you left dealing with personal injuries and property damage, but the person responsible is nowhere to be found. They’ve illegally and irresponsibly shirked their duties as a driver, and now you’re left picking up the pieces. At Freedland Harwin Valori, PL we offer legal services to victims of hit-and-runs throughout Florida. We can help you take the next step when an at-fault driver takes off without accepting accountability for an accident. Let us guide you to financial compensation, through an insurance settlement or personal injury claim.
What to Do After a Hit-And-Run
If you are the victim of a hit-and-run, you must put your personal health first. Go to the doctor or call an ambulance right away – even if you don’t feel injured. You could have a hidden injury, such as an injury to your spine or a brain injury. It is always a good idea to visit the hospital and explain what happened. A professional medical exam and tests can diagnose an injury and result in prompt treatment. Keep all records of your visit and medical bills.
Next, it is time to gather information. Get as much information as you can about your accident, including where and when it happened. Obtain details of the hit-and-run driver if possible, including the make, model, and color of the vehicle or its license plates. Ask around to see if there were any witnesses. If so, get their names and contact information. Take note of businesses in the area, and ask about possible security camera footage of the collision. Information can be difficult to obtain in hit-and-run incidents. Talk to an attorney for a more in-depth investigation of your accident.
Once you have collected as much info as you can about your accident and sought medical attention, aim your sights on financial recovery. You may have physical injuries, property damage, or other losses because of the negligent hit-and-run driver. Reckless drivers should get away with criminal acts. We work hard to ensure hit-and-run victims recover with aggressive insurance settlement negotiations, evidence preservation, and personal injury claims, if necessary. We do what is necessary to secure financial compensation.
