If you were hit by a car and the other driver fled the scene of the crash, you are going to need help from a Spokane hit-and-run car accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates. These cases are complicated, so hiring an attorney is your best option for ensuring that your legal rights are protected.
Being involved in a hit-and-run is frightening, especially when you have to worry about your legal and financial options without knowing who to hold responsible. Taking certain steps after the accident can protect you legally. These include the following:
Your own insurance company will likely pay for the majority of your medical bills while your case is ongoing. You may even have a provision in your policy to pay damages after being hurt in a hit-and-run. We can review the policy for you and let you know what your options are.
The challenge is that they may deny requests for certain procedures or lowball your settlement offer. We can keep them honest and ensure that you are treated fairly.
In addition to having medical bills paid for by your insurance company, there may be options for pursuing damages from the driver who sped off. After filing a police report, the police may find the guilty party. The use of video footage from nearby cameras, witness testimony, partial license plates, and similar evidence can all be useful in tracking the guilty party down.
Once he or she has been identified, we can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf. In addition to seeking economic damages for things like lost wages, medical bills, and transportation costs, we can also seek non-economic damages. This includes getting money for pain and suffering and lost quality of life.
A jury may also award punitive damages to punish the driver for demonstrating negligent behavior in driving away without taking responsibility.
A Spokane hit-and-run car accident lawyer from our office can help you get more money for your injuries. It is not easy to receive compensation after being injured in a hit-and-run. Your best option is to work with an experienced attorney.
