Lawyers Advising Clients After a Hit-and-Run

There are not very many actions that are more irresponsible than leaving the scene of a car accident. Rather than stopping to find out if someone is injured and lending assistance, the driver leaves the victim stuck and possibly fighting for life.

At MacDowell & Associates, we take hit-and-run accidents very seriously. We realize that these types of accidents can leave the victim feeling powerless and without any type of recourse. We are committed to helping clients seek justice and compensation from the negligent and criminally-liable individual who hit their vehicle and fled the scene.

Drivers who leave the scene of an accident usually do so because they fear prosecution for something they did wrong. In a large number of hit-and-run accidents, the person responsible for the hit-and-run was a drunk driver. We handle drunk driving accident hit-and-run situations, along with hit-and-runs involving:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents

The typical reaction of jurors who are reviewing a hit-and-run accident case is to punish the negligent driver by awarding punitive damages to the victim. Punitive damages can be far in excess of the actual damages caused by the accident. By awarding these types of monetary damages, the jury sends a message to the community and to any irresponsible individuals considering leaving the scene of an accident that it will not tolerate hit-and-run drivers.

We can also advise you of auto insurance aspects of your case. Underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage may provide for coverage on some of the property damages, along with medical bills, that you have incurred as a result of the hit-and-run.
