Mobile, Alabama attorneys who will fight to help you recover compensation
Whenever there is a car accident in Alabama, the people involved are required by law to stay on the scene until it is sorted out. But sometimes, a driver will cause an accident and simply leave. If this has happened to you, it can leave you feeling frustrated, angry and confused about what to do next.
The car accident attorneys at Dean Waite & Associates, LLC know how to handle these types of accidents. That’s why people in Alabama turn to us when they have been injured in a hit-and-run accident. We can explore every option to help the injured recover as much financial compensation as possible.
There can be many reasons why drivers flee the scene of an accident. They may not have car insurance, as the law requires. They may be driving without a license. They may have been drinking or have something in the car they don’t want police to see. But when they drive away, the people they hurt are left to fend for themselves.
Car accidents complicated. We can help.
As with any other car wreck, a hit-and-run accident can leave you injured. The cost of treating these injuries can quickly become overwhelming. And your injuries may leave you unable to work, resulting in loss income. In addition to the physical injuries you’ve suffered, the accident can also have a tremendous financial impact.
In some cases, it may be possible to identify the driver. The police can investigate your crash and may find evidence or a witness that leads to them to the right person. Our firm can help you take action to hold this person responsible. But sometimes, it is not possible to identify the driver that caused your crash and sped away.
Recovering compensation after a hit-and-run accident usually begins by filing a claim with your own insurance company. If you did not waive uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) on your policy, your insurance company should compensate you for damages. But it is not always a simple process.
You deserve to be compensated
Insurance companies typically try to find ways to pay you as little as possible. They may question the extent of your injuries or damages to your car. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced car accident attorney on your side who knows how to deal with insurance companies.
If you do not have UM/UIM coverage, or if the damage you suffered exceed the limits of your policy, collecting damages can get complicated. We can help you pursue all available avenues for compensation.
