Hit-And-Run Accidents

Hit And Runs Can Be Devastating Accidents

The pain and grief that follows a hit-and-run accident are hard to overstate. While any accident involving a car is unquestionably traumatic, a hit and run can feel even worse. Specifically, when someone fails to stop and render assistance, without even checking on the person they struck, it shocks the conscious, leaving victims feeling vulnerable and helpless. When these devastating types of accidents occur, victims not only have to pick up the pieces, but they must also try and determine the following: Who will cover my medical expenses? How can I make up lost wages? Who will pay to repair or replace the car? When a hit and run results in death, who will compensate my family for their loss? Asking these questions can be difficult to bear, requiring the assistance of a competent personal injury attorney to help you bring your hit-and-run driver to justice.

Our firm has represented thousands of hit-and-run accident victims located throughout southern Florida. With more than 130 years of collective practice under our belts, our team of personal injury attorneys has fought hard for our client to recover compensation for their medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, disability, and/or the passing of a family member.

The Devastating Effects Of Hit-And-Run Accidents

Without a doubt, hit-and-run accidents are devastating. Unlike many other accident cases, locating the offending driver and witnesses to the event may present several challenges. Police may be involved in the investigation because departing the scene immediately after an accident constitutes a crime in Florida. When the driver is ultimately brought to justice, they can be held liable for all of the damages they caused, so proper legal advocacy is highly recommended.

In addition to helping hit-and-run victims and their families pursue justice and fair compensation for their losses, our firm cooperates with law enforcement agencies to help apprehend hit-and-run drivers to hold them accountable to the fullest extent of the law.

When you meet with one of the seasoned legal professionals at Greenberg Stone & Urbano, he or she will help you understand your case and the complicated legal procedures associated with pursuing a financial award to cover for your injuries, pain and suffering, lost income, and medical expenses.

Hit-And-Run Accident Victims Require Skilled Legal Representation

Florida hit-and-run cases are more complex than regular car accident cases. You need a firm that is experienced at working with the victims of hit-and-run accidents. Superior investigation skills are required. You may need to file a claim under your uninsured motorists' coverage. If a vehicle used for work was involved, there may be additional claims against the driver's employer. Speaking with an attorney will ensure that you understand all of your rights, responsibilities and legal options in this regard.
