What is Required at the Scene of an Accident?
If a driver causes an accident, it is their responsibility to immediately pull over and exchange insurance information with the other driver. Unfortunately, many drivers ignore this legal requirement for a number of reasons such as:
- They don’t have insurance coverage.
- They have an expired or suspended driver’s license.
- They are under the influence of drugs or alcohol and may face criminal charges.
Todd Miner Law works hard to vigorously protect the rights of hit and run accident victims. Our goal in representing you is to maximize the value of your insurance claim so that you can get the money you need to cover your medical bills, vehicle repair costs, lost wages, and more. We encourage you to contact us to learn more about your legal rights after a car accident.
How Can I Obtain Compensation After a Hit & Run Accident?
Even though the driver of the car who hit you decided to flee the scene, there are still ways that you can obtain compensation for your losses. For example, if you have purchased uninsured motorist/uninsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage as a supplement to your auto insurance policy, we will pursue a claim with your own insurer.
This coverage was designed to provide compensation to innocent people who were injured through the negligence of drivers who either do not have insurance, do not have sufficient insurance, or who fail to take responsibility for their actions and flee the scene of an accident. In Florida, it is not necessary to prove that the other vehicle made physical contact with your vehicle, as long as it can be proved that the other vehicle caused your vehicle to wreck.
Alternatively, if police are ever able to identify and locate the person who caused your accident, you may be able to pursue compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against that driver. Since no two cases are the same, talk to our Orlando car accident attorneys about your options.
