Los Angeles Hit and Run Car Accident Attorneys
Hit and Run Victim
Car accidents are life-changing events. If a vehicle struck you while you were crossing the street, riding your bike or driving to work, the injuries can leave deep scars – emotionally and physically. The damage inflicted is only made worse when the person who caused the accident drives away from the scene, leaving you or a loved one to deal with the injuries THEY caused. Such behavior is not only dangerous – it can be deadly. Each year, too many Southern Californians lose their lives to hit and run drivers.
That is why Kahn Roven, LLP is dedicated to helping those who have been victimized by cowardly and dangerous hit and run drivers. If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one in a hit and run collision, the time to take legal action could be now. If the person has been caught, they could face serious criminal charges along with your potential civil claim. If they haven't been caught yet, you can still secure compensation under your own insurance policy. In either situation you'll need an experienced personal injury attorney to help see your claim through to the end.
Call Kahn Roven, LLP and schedule a free consultation to discuss your car accident and your legal options. Dial (844) 9-INJURED and speak with a member of our team today.
How Can I Receive Compensation if the Driver is Never Caught?
Unfortunately, a large majority of hit and run drivers are never actually caught. While there are exceptions, many of these criminals manage to avoid police for one reason or another. If you've been in a hit and run accident where the at-fault driver wasn't caught, you can still file a claim – but it will focus on your own insurance rather than the negligent drivers. Provided you have underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage as part of your policy, you may be able to receive the compensation you'll need to recover. Depending on the severity of your collision and the injuries you suffered, you may be eligible to get financial compensation for one or more of the following:
- Emergency medical treatment
- Hospital accommodations
- Doctor and specialist fees
- Medical equipment
Why Do I Need an Attorney?
While many accidents don't necessarily require the services of a legal counselor, it definitely helps to have an attorney, especially in hit and run cases. Insurance companies, especially your own, are not the generous companies their marketing firms want you to believe. They are businesses, and they usually try to minimize claims as much as possible. Having a lawyer at your side representing your interests, may be the only way to get the best potential settlement. Having good legal counsel can go a long way toward putting your mind at ease, especially when it feels like the world has been turned upside down.
