Involved in a Hit and Run Accident? Know Your Legal Rights
Hit and runs are crimes in which a driver is involved in a collision and knowingly fails to stop. This collision can involve another vehicle, property, a pedestrian, or cyclists. If you have been involved in such an accident, call to get a free consultation from a hit and run lawyer.
After an accident, drivers are required to stop and provide information including their name and license number. Even if the crash occurred with an unattended vehicle, the individual responsible for the collision is required to make an attempt to contact the owner, identify himself or herself, and inform them of what occurred.
If the incident occurred with a company vehicle, you may be able to hold the employer liable for damages, so long as the employee was acting within the scope of his or her job. You also have the right to take action against the owner of a vehicle even if they weren’t driving at the time of the accident if the owner gave the offender permission to borrow their car.
An experienced hit and run lawyer from our network will use your account of the accident to make the strongest claim possible.
