You May Recover Compensation Even If the Other Driver Flees

When you’re injured in a car accident, you expect the other driver to stop, exchange information, and render aid if necessary. Unfortunately, some drivers make no such efforts and flee the scene of the accident.

Our goal is to increase those odds as much as possible by rendering personalized legal support and services that focus on reaching the best possible outcomes.

What Is a Hit & Run Accident?

A hit and run accident is a criminal offense that involves a lot more than failing to stop after hitting a pedestrian, another vehicle, or someone else’s property.

All drivers must do the following after any accident:

  • Immediately stop or move to a safe location to stop
  • Identify who they are
  • Provide information such as their address, contact information, car registration number, and proof of insurance
  • Notify police if the accident caused injury
  • Render assistance to anyone who may be injured

A driver who fails to perform any of the actions listed above can be criminally charged with hit and run, which is a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison if someone was injured or killed.

How Do I Recover Compensation from a Hit & Run Accident?

You can recover compensation for damages incurred as the result of a hit and run accident by filing a claim with your own auto insurance company. If you have no-fault insurance in Pennsylvania, you don’t have to name an at-fault driver to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, or other damage payouts.

If you do have fault-based insurance and the driver who hit you is never found, you may still be able to file a claim if you purchased optional coverage.

Some optional coverage opportunities include the following:

  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage: This covers you and your passengers bodily injuries and property damage when an accident involved an uninsured or unidentified driver.
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Coverage: PIP coverage can provide you with up to $10,000 in coverage, even if you are at fault for an accident.
  • MedPay Coverage: This type of coverage provides compensation for medical expenses you and your passengers incurred, regardless of fault.

Pursuing compensation from your own insurance company after a hit and run accident can be frustrating and complicated. Fortunately, our hit and run lawyers in Lancaster, PA are experienced advocates who understand what it takes to achieve meaningful payouts for our clients.
