Hit and Run Accidents
When a driver hits another vehicle, pedestrian or bicyclist and leaves the scene of the accident, it is called a hit and run. It is unlawful for any driver in an accident to leave the scene, yet it happens frequently. If you have been injured in a hit and run accident in the Atlanta area, you may wonder what options you have to seek compensation for your injuries. Dwayne L. Brown offers legal assistance for victims of hit and run accidents, fighting for your right to compensation for your injuries.
When you are injured in an auto accident, your first concern is getting the medical care you need. However, this is just the beginning when it comes to a hit and run accident. You may be facing time lost from work, medical bills and recovery that is expensive and puts a strain on your finances. The negligent driver may have left the scene, but that does not mean there are not options to pursue compensation for your injuries. Dwayne L. Brown can help you explore your options and find the best solutions to seek financial compensation to help minimize the impact on your life.
Compensation Options for Hit and Run Injury Victims
Just because a driver left the scene after an accident does not mean they will not be found. Witnesses, traffic cameras and other evidence may help locate the driver to hold them accountable for their actions. The legal team at Dwayne L. Brown uses our resources to help find the drivers that caused hit and run accidents, holding them liable for the injuries they caused our clients.
In some hit and run accidents, the driver is not found, or when they are located, they do not have insurance or the financial means to pay for the injuries they caused. When this occurs, we work to find other options to obtain compensation for our clients. If you have uninsured or under-insured motorist coverage on your auto insurance policy, we can help fight for compensation through your insurance.
