Our Las Vegas hit-and-run accident lawyer can help you find fair compensation and recoveries.
Nevada State laws require everyone involved in a car accident to stay at the scene until all information is exchanged and everyone receives the help they require. Despite the illegality of fleeing the scene before being identified, people commit hit-and-runs frequently.
If you are frustrated after being struck by a negligent driver who left immediately or before you could get their driver’s license or insurance information, know that you are not out of luck and have legal options.
When someone flees a car accident scene, whether they were the cause of it or not, they are technically considered uninsured motorists. Suppose you have uninsured motorist insurance as part of your insurance policy. In that case, you should be able to receive benefits from your insurance carrier despite being unable to tell them who hit you. More trouble can arise if your insurance provider refuses to offer proper damage recovery amounts.
They may only give you the bare minimum amount due to skepticism or frugality, which could not even be close to enough. When this occurs, you may be able to bring a lawsuit or claim against your car insurance provider for more coverage.
Recoveries you may be able to receive after a hit-and-run can include:
You may be surprised how often people forget to notify the authorities after a hit-and-run driver has struck them. Provide them with any information you can, and they may be able to pinpoint who it was that committed this illegal act, either based on other reports or the person’s criminal history.
Information you may be able to give the police despite not having authentic identification includes:
If the police can track the offender, they will bring criminal charges against them. The criminal case is not a civil case that reflects or benefits your situation. If you want justice and compensation from the offender, you must file your lawsuit.
Being at the receiving end of a devastating hit-and-run accident in Las Vegas can be understandably demoralizing. The last thing you need is more trouble, stress, and burdens on your shoulders. To help you through the difficulties ahead, you can retain the services of our Las Vegas car accident lawyer for nothing upfront due to our contingency fee agreements; if we do not get you a settlement for you at the end of your case or trial, you do not owe us a cent.
