When a driver flees the scene of an accident, decent people like you or your loved ones can be left reeling, injured, and unsure of how to pursue justice. At Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA, our car accident lawyers have dedicated themselves to helping those injured in hit-and-run accidents put their lives back together, receive compensation, and bring those responsible to civil justice.
It is important for those injured to know that even when the fugitive driver cannot be identified, compensation for accident injuries may still be available. Do not let a driver’s unknown identity keep you from contacting an attorney!
Even in scenarios where a driver is never identified, the attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA can help you evaluate your accident and determine all liable parties and potential sources of compensation. This may include pursuing any of the following:
After your free consultation, our hit-and-run accident attorneys will help you decide what sources of compensation may be available and appropriate, and negotiate on your behalf to obtain the best result possible.
After a hit-and-run, finding the responsible driver will be a matter primarily undertaken by the local authorities. It will be helpful for your case to stay at the scene, independently record the names and personal information of any witnesses to the accident, file a police report, and contact an attorney as quickly as possible.
While police do an admirable job pursuing criminals, your attorney can provide investigatory resources focused on your case. This can include contacting witnesses directly, requesting video footage that may have captured the fleeing driver, and potentially helping you identify the guilty party.
Not all fugitive drivers are identified, but remember that a driver’s identity does not necessarily need to be known for hit-and-run victims to be compensated for their injuries. If you or a loved one were injured in a hit-and-run accident, contact us immediately and let us fight for you.
