How a hit-and-run accident lawyer can help you

Our hit-and-run accident attorney’s first step in taking action regarding a hit-and-run case is to investigate the incident and identify the driver responsible. They might use multiple means to identify the other driver, and some of these means are:

  • Traffic camera footage
  • Business security camera footage
  • Dashboard camera footage.

Our team will explore every avenue to identify the other vehicle’s driver. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be to find the driver who fled the scene. If locating the other driver proves impossible, our Reno hit-and-run accident attorneys can still help you come out ahead.

Your driver’s insurance policy may contain no-fault coverage options like uninsured motorist coverage or medical payment coverage. These options are specifically designed to protect you when you are the victim of a hit-and-run. Even if these should be present in your policy, getting the most out of them is not easy, but we can still help you achieve a successful resolution.

Our Reno hit-and-run accident lawyers can help you receive the highest possible compensation by investigating the full extent of the damage caused by the accident. We can assist you in building a case with evidence corroborating your claims and by thoroughly researching your policy terms and limits.

Also, insurance companies are known for not paying for hit-and-run damages without a fight. This can make it impossible to get the most out of your policy unless you have our experienced Reno hit-and-run accident attorneys fighting for you.

Compensation for hit-and-run accidents in Reno

The compensation received following a Reno hit-and-run accident depends on many factors. First, the overall case value is determined by the extent of the damages incurred. The more experience a Reno hit-and-run accident lawyer has, the more likely they are to identify a higher case value.

Bodily injuries and property damage are handled differently by insurance companies. In car accident cases, physical injuries are usually where higher amounts of compensation come into play. Compensation reimburses you for a wide range of losses related to your injuries, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Ambulance bills
  • Prescription medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Lost wages.

The amount of compensation you might qualify for depends on several factors, including whether . . .

  • You will make a full recovery
  • You will be able to return to work if you are employed
  • You have dependents who rely on your income
  • The accident involved catastrophic or life-altering injuries.

Finally, our hit-and-run lawyer will also consider the non-financial damages that can help to increase your overall compensation. These encompass damages such as:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of companionship
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Disfigurement
  • Embarrassment and humiliation.

It takes an experienced lawyer to identify factors like these and then build the argument proving the damages. Once we have identified all the factors that may impact the total compensation value, we will negotiate with the relevant insurance company to achieve as much compensation as possible, given the evidence.

When the hit-and-run driver has been identified, these negotiations happen with that driver’s insurance company. But when the other driver remains at large, we will work to maximize the possible coverage available under your uninsured motorist policy.

We will help handle all the necessary negotiations or ensuing lawsuits.
