If you have been injured in a car accident and the at-fault driver fled the scene, where will you turn for compensation? Whether the driver can be identified or not, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you pursue compensation for your losses.
At Miller & Ogorchock, S.C., we have extensive experience handling hit-and-run accident cases for clients from the Milwaukee area and throughout Wisconsin.
Compensation for Hit-and-Run Accidents
If the driver of a hit-and-run accident cannot be identified, the injured party may seek compensation from his or her own uninsured motorist coverage. However, just because you are drawing upon your own insurance coverage, it does not mean the insurance company will freely pay the full value of your claim. You will likely have to fight for fair compensation and a skilled car accident lawyer can help you pursue maximum compensation for your losses.
There Doesn’t Have to Be a Collision
Under Wisconsin law, there does not have to be contact with the other vehicle for the injury to be recoverable. If a reckless hit-and-run driver cut you off, for instance, causing you to drive your car into the ditch, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.
