If you think that trying to recover compensation for your hit and run injuries is a lost cause, think again. When a driver flees the scene, it can make your case more challenging, but there are several ways in which you may still be able to recover the compensation you so badly need. It may be possible to track down the driver, you may be able to collect from your own insurance company, and there may be another liable party such as the maker of a defective vehicle. An experienced Las Vegas auto accident attorney can help you pursue every avenue of compensation.
If you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage as a part of your own auto insurance policy, we can seek compensation from your insurance company. Your insurance company may try to fight paying, even if you have paid for the coverage.
Finding the Hit and Run Driver
In many cases, we can find the driver who fled the scene, even if law enforcement has failed. We will conduct a thorough investigation of your hit and run accident, but we have to get started quickly, before evidence is lost or destroyed. We may be able to use video footage from a variety of sources including traffic cameras and nearby surveillance cameras to identify the driver. There may have been witnesses who are willing to help you as the victim even if they did not want to get involved in a criminal investigation.
