Hit & Run Lawyers

A hit and run accident can happen anywhere, to anyone, at any time of day. The victims in these cases have rights and are entitled to comprehensive medical coverage. The HARRISON PENSA™ Personal Injury Group provides the necessary help victims and their families can rely on.

What to do after a hit and run accident

The law requires the driver of any vehicle involved in an accident to stop the vehicle, find the owners of the damaged vehicles or property, and exchange personal information such as name, address, insurance, etc. Although this is the requirement of the law, too often drivers leave the scene of accidents.

It’s crucial to report a hit and run accident immediately after it happened along with any information you remember about the other vehicle (vehicle make and model, license plate number, etc.) to the proper law enforcement authorities. Victims of hit and run accidents have options to protect their rights and along with an experienced lawyer, fight for justice.

In many cases where a pedestrian or bicyclist is struck the driver may flee the scene of the collision. In other cases where an at-fault driver makes little or no contact with another car but causes that other car to crash, the at-fault driver may flee the scene of the accident. In these cases, there may still be a claim for accident benefits and a claim for unidentified driver insurance coverage. However, where there is an unidentified driver with little or no vehicle damage, there may be no witnesses and proof of the existence of an unidentified driver may be difficult. Early consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer will permit an early investigation before evidence on the surface of the road and other physical evidence or surveillance camera evidence is lost. HARRISON PENSA™ will fight for you by quickly initiating an investigation and hiring accident reconstruction engineers and investigators to preserve accident scene evidence in order to prove the cause of the collision.
