Are you a victim of a hit-and-run accident in New Jersey?
Hit-and-run accidents can end up being much more stressful than seemingly every other kind of accident. Luckily, there are ways to get help. The Law Offices of David A. DiBrigida offer 28 years of experience with New Jersey hit and cases and can assist you in dealing with the situation appropriately.
Accidents can be challenging experiences even in the best of circumstances. However, when you’ve been struck and injured in a hit-and-run accident, things can appear even worse.
After all, when a driver stays at the scene and takes appropriate action, they can be identified and you can get the necessary insurance information from them. Likewise, when necessary, you can file a personal injury claim to recover any damages you might have incurred. However, when you are dealing with a negligent driver who flees the scene, you are left there alone to deal with the consequences with seemingly no financial recourse.
When you hire a professional New Jersey hit-and-run attorney from our respected office, we will be able to assist you in filing any necessary insurance claims and to locate a hit-and-run driver that fled the scene of your accident. We will work as hard as possible to ensure that you are fully compensated for the accident and the related damages when it wasn’t your fault. Likewise, we will further assist you in navigating through the entire legal process from start to finish to ensure you can put this traumatic event in your rear-view mirror.
Tracking Down The Hit-And-Run Driver
As with a lot of other legal issues, the key to winning is the ability to gather reliable and substantial evidence.
To effectively locate a New Jersey hit-and-run driver, you will need to collect as much information about the accident as possible. However, when you are recovering from the accident and potentially stuck in the hospital with injuries, it is doubtful you will be able to do much of anything to track down the driver who hit you.
For this reason, you need someone working around the clock for you who is skilled at investigating. We can interview witnesses who were at the scene, gather any pertinent evidence, and we can help work with you and your insurance company to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
Filing An Uninsured Driver Claim
In a lot of accidents, all of the drivers who were involved in the accident exchange insurance information. From there, whichever driver was determined to be at fault for the accident is the one whose insurance would be responsible for covering the damages. You can also sue the at-fault driver to recover any potential losses.
However, if the driver fled the scene and they can’t be identified because of it, you might be left wondering who is going to pay for the expenses? Medical care from accidents could get very expensive if the accident resulted in serious injuries. Luckily, you still have options. Depending on the coverage you have, you might be eligible to file for an uninsured motorist claim.
A respected and experienced hit-and-run attorney, David A. DiBrigida, will be able to help you fully comprehend your insurance policy and assist you in filing a claim to recover all compensation you deserve. If your insurance company looks to deny your claim or they offer a lesser amount than you are entitled to, you have the option to appeal the decision and we can help with it.
