Hit and run claims refer to legal actions taken by individuals who have been involved in an accident where the other party fled the scene without providing their details. Hit and run accidents can be very traumatic and leave victims feeling helpless and unsure of what to do next.
In a hit and run claim, the victim seeks compensation for damages caused by the accident. These damages may include physical injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If the victim was killed in the accident, their family members may also be entitled to compensation for wrongful death.
To file a hit and run claim, the victim must first report the incident to the police and provide as much information as possible about the other vehicle involved in the accident. This may include the license plate number, make and model of the vehicle, and any other identifying details.
Once the police have been informed, the victim can file a claim with their own insurance company. In some cases, the insurance company may offer a settlement to the victim. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, the victim may need to file a lawsuit to obtain compensation.
In such cases, it is recommended to seek the help of an experienced hit and run claims solicitor who can guide the victim through the legal process, gather evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, and represent them in court if necessary. At Hit and Run Claims, our solicitors have extensive experience in handling hit and run claims and can provide the legal support and guidance you need to obtain the compensation you deserve.
