Seeking Damages From Drivers Who Left the Scene

Holding Irresponsible Drivers Legally Accountable
Driving is a privilege, not a right, and the privilege of driving on Florida roads comes with certain responsibilities. Among those responsibilities is that¬†any driver involved in a car accident must stop and make sure no one is injured, and if someone is, get help.
Hit and run drivers are people who have avoided taking responsibility for their actions. If they can be identified, they can be held accountable for the damage they have caused and for the irresponsible way they have behaved.
Hit and run drivers can often be identified through witness accounts, damage to their vehicles and other means. We carefully investigate these cases and follow up on all leads to determine who was responsible¬†so we can¬†obtain compensation for our clients.
Making a Claim With Your Insurance Company, if Necessary
In some cases, it is not possible to identify hit and run drivers. If you have been hit by someone who remains unidentified and you have¬†auto insurance, you should be able to get compensation under your uninsured and underinsured motorist policy.
Although your insurance company has a strong legal and contractual duty to fairly compensate you for all covered situations, many people have problems with their uninsured and underinsured motorist policies. We can be your advocates and pursue the compensation you deserve. Contact us today to discuss your options with attorney Hugh James McDonnell.
