While fault in car accidents involving two vehicles is quite simple to determine, it is a completely different story when it comes to hit and run accidents. When an at-fault driver flees the scene of the collision, the injured victim is left to wonder who is going to pay for the property damage and injury.
If you were involved in an auto accident where the at-fault motorist left the scene in Louisiana, The Law Office of Robert B. Dunlap is here to help you recover your entitled compensation. With more than three decades of experience, Shreveport car accident lawyer, Attorney Dunlap, understands what it takes to guide you through the complexities of the system in order to obtain the most favorable outcome possible.
In an attempt to file a claim against the phantom motorist responsible for the collision, there are certain steps you must take immediately after the incident (if possible).
Most victims are often concerned about how to recover compensation when the liable party cannot be tracked down. If police officers are unable to locate the liable party either through surveillance footage or witnesses, then you have the option of recovering damages through your own underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage. UM coverage is essential in cases whether the other driver does not carry sufficient coverage, does not have insurance, or if you are hit by a driver who fled the scene.
If you do not have UM coverage, it may be difficult to recover compensation for your injuries. Other possible sources of compensation may be through your health insurance or an immediate family member’s policy. Talk to our attorney to find out more.
