Have you been involved in a hit and run?

Drivers may choose to flee the scene of the accident for a variety of reasons: no valid driver's license, no auto insurance, drunk driving, or a pending arrest warrant against the fleeing driver. Whatever the reason for fleeing is, the injured person left at the scene with no help may feel helpless and devastated.

If you have been involved in a hit and run:

  • Do not follow the reckless driver. The driver may be drunk or dangerous and the chase may be risky in itself.
  • Call 911 as soon as possible.
  • If there are any witnesses to the hit and run, collect information from them and write down their contact information.
  • Write down the license plate number of the fleeing driver, if you remember. If not, write down the make, model and color of the car.
  • If possible, take pictures of the site and your car.
  • Report the incident to the police in detail.
  • Contact your insurance company and the police and give them what information you can. And even if you can't get any of these details, you may still be able to use your collision or uninsured driver coverage if your policy includes them.

Taking these steps is important, but most important is contacting the Lassen Law Firm.

Getting Compensation

The problem with hit and run accidents is that victims can have trouble getting compensation for their injuries and any property damage done to their vehicles. Victims of hit and runs may feel helpless, especially if they have no insurance. Medical bills, the cost of fixing a car and lost wages associated with the incident may accrue and be a big problem for a hit and run victim. If you have been in a hit and run collision, you may feel you have nowhere to turn for help. You are not without recourse. An experienced Pennsylvania hit and run attorney will help you navigate the challenges ahead, making sure your rights are protected and your medical costs are taken care of. The Lassen Law Firm, Philadelphia hit and run collision lawyers, represent people who have been involved in car accidents, pedestrian accidents or bicycle accidents where the driver responsible for the accident fled the scene. We will make sure you get the full and fair compensation for your losses.

Liability Insurance Pennsylvania

The Lassen Law Firm warns all people who think that they can resolve a UM claim without a lawyer, that they should think again. Most people make many mistakes and sabotage their good claims. You should never make a statement to your insurance company with respect to your injuries, as your insurance company is an adverse party for a UM claim, and will use your statement against you. People think that they can save money by not using a lawyer, but insurance companies typically pay out a tenth of what an experienced personal injury lawyer can recover. Also, there may be more than one policy to which to recover. Most people only recover money from one. Lastly, most people think that they have beat the system after they obtain a settlement they think is fair. What they fail to realize is that there are typically liens that can far exceed their recovery, and they end up owing not only the money they recovered, but thousands or tens of thousands of dollars more. Best not to try to resolve a case without an experienced lawyer, or it will typically end badly.
