North Carolina Hit and Run Accident Attorney
Suffering injuries in a hit-and-run accident can be overwhelming. Without the identity of the negligent driver — or his or her insurance policy, many hit-and-run accident victims feel they are at a loss. However, an experienced auto accident litigation attorney can help you understand your options when you are involved in a hit-and-run. At Nagle & Associates, our main focus is making sure you and your family recover the full compensation you are entitled to for lost wages, medical expenses and other damages. Contact us at one of our North Carolina offices, in Charlotte, Raleigh, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Asheville, Wilmington or Hickory.
Obtaining Compensation After a Hit and Run
In the context of pursuing financial recovery, hit-and run-accident cases are similar to cases where the driver had no insurance (uninsured motorist) or insufficient insurance (underinsured motorist) to cover the extent of the injuries sustained. In these car accident cases, we pursue compensation from your own insurance policy through an uninsured motorist claim. Your uninsured motorist protection provides compensation up to the policy limits for past, current and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity and other damages.
Hit and run accidents typically involve a driver who either did not realize he/she hit someone or who was afraid of being caught for committing a crime, including:
- Accidents involving a drunk driver
- Accidents involving a pedestrian or bicyclist who was struck by a car
- Accidents involving children who were on the side of the road, in a crosswalk or who suddenly ran into the street
- Accidents involving a truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel
