After a car accident, Florida law requires drivers to stop and exchange necessary information. If someone might be injured, if the property damage seems like it may be over $500, or if a driver seems intoxicated, you must report the accident to law enforcement officers by calling 911 right away. Sometimes, you may pull over after getting hit, prepared to do what you’re supposed to do. However, the other driver does not stop and drives away, leaving you wondering what to do. Hit and run accident claims can be complex, and you need the assistance of a skilled car accident lawyer right away.
Insurance Claims after a Hit and Run
After a hit and run, write down anything you’re member about the vehicle or driver who hit you. Talk to any witnesses who may have any additional information about what happened. Once you call our law firm, we can help determine whether there is any surveillance video footage of the crash. However, in some cases, law enforcement officers will not catch the driver who left the scene.
In Florida, your no-fault personal injury protection (PIP) insurance should cover your medical bills and lost wages up to a certain amount. If your losses exceed what’s available under your PIP policy, you may be able to make a claim under your uninsured motorist policy. Even though these are both your own policies, these claims are never simple and dealing with your insurer can be difficult. It is best to have the representation of a skilled attorney from the beginning of your claim.
