Boston Hit-and-Run Accident Attorney
Being involved in a car accident can be a very traumatic experience. Not only do you often have significant injuries to recover from, but you also must deal with the high cost of vehicle repairs and other resulting damages. A hit-and-run accident compounds these issues because in addition to recovering physically and financially, you must potentially do so without any at-fault driver information to work with. At DiBella Law Offices, P.C., our legal team can help you make sense of it all. If you or a loved one has been injured in a hit-and-run accident, don’t hesitate to contact our Boston car accident attorney at (617) 870-0907 to discuss the circumstances of the incident and the legal rights you have moving forward.
Leaving the scene of an accident without checking on the other driver and exchanging insurance information is a crime. While the other driver was likely already facing consequences for having caused the accident, that driver now faces criminal charges for fleeing the scene. While some drivers do return to the scene after initially fleeing, a high number do not. And unless you were able to commit the other vehicle’s license plate number to memory, odds are high that you’ll have to file a claim with your own insurance company instead of the other driver’s insurance provider.
The team at DiBella Law Offices, P.C. can work to gather as much information possible to assist in filing your claim. In some instances, witness testimony or security camera footage might help police track down the negligent hit-and-run driver. We live in an age where almost everyone walking down the street (or in a vehicle) has a recording device handy. Factor in security cameras placed near local businesses, intersection cameras, and other video surveillance, and it’s difficult for an incident like a hit-and-run to go unnoticed these days. In the event the driver can’t be tracked down though after an exhaustive search, you’ll have to be able to clearly lay out the total financial impact of the incident to your insurance company. Our law firm can assist you every step of the way.
If law enforcement can apprehend the negligent, hit-and-run driver, you will be able to pursue a civil case against that driver. Your claim may include compensation for the following:
- Current and future medical expenses related to your injuries from the accident;
- Lost wages resulting from time away from work caused by the accident;
- Any permanent disability sustained as a result of the accident;
- Loss of earning potential due to injuries sustained during the accident;
- Pain and suffering resulting from the accident.
Boston hit-and-run accidents can be complicated, especially considering a search for the negligent driver will have to take place prior to any legal action being taken against that driver. Don’t try to handle recovery from a hit-and-run accident without the help of an experienced attorney.
