Insurance Coverage Issues
Your compensation depends on the available insurance-and your attorneys knowledge and skill. At Ellis and Associates, we pursue all sources of coverage, including the other drivers policy and any third parties (such as a manufacturer who is responsible for an auto defect that caused the crash or made injuries worse). If the other driver was not insured, or carrying only the minimum coverage, we have experience in uninsurance/under insurance motorist claims. This is protection under your own car accident insurance that covers the difference.
Hit and Run Claims
“Hit and run” accidents make up about 11% of all auto accidents. After a “hit and run” driver flees the scene of the accident, the unfortunate victim is left to bear the full burden of the consequences which may include vehicle coverage, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and disability. The “hit and run” driver may flee the scene of the accident to avoid responsibility for the accident or to avoid other legal responsibilities, including penalties for driving without a license or for driving without insurance.
If you suffer a “hit and run” vehicle accident. It is important to immediately document the “hit and run” accident by reporting the accident to police and seeking medical care. An immediate police response can sometimes lead to apprehension of the “hit and run” driver. If you are hit and you cannot determine the driver’s identity, our laws protect injured people against this contingency, and most insurance policies provide coverage for “hit and run” cases.
The legal team at Ellis and Associates are experienced at handling “hit and run” motorist claims. We have handled numerous similar cases and can help you if you have been a victim of a “hit and run” accident.
Force and Run Claims
In some “hit and run” cases, your vehicle is not actually hit by another vehicle, but is forced off the road by another driver’s actions. Many people assume that they do not have a claim. If the other driver leaves the scene or if they are forced off the road, yet such claims are viable.
Insurance policies are generally required to cover these accidents just as they would a hit and run involving a collision, but these cases are more challenging to prosecute. The insurance carriers invariably contest a “force and run” claim by arguing that there is no evidence of another vehicle’s responsibility for your accident. Therefore, early investigation and preservation of such claims is even more important in these “force and run” cases. In a “force and run” case, you may have taken the emergency measures necessary to avoid a collision with a negligent driver, only to have been forced off the road into a collision with a tree, a structure, or another vehicle.
Remember–even if you are not hit but are forced off the road or into a stationary object or other vehicle by another driver, we can pursue your claims. Under all of the circumstances, our legal fee is contingent on our success-there is no legal fee unless we recover damages for you.
