Pittsburgh Hit-and-Run Accident Lawyers
Get an experienced car crash attorney to fight for you
Car accidents are a fact of life in Pittsburgh and throughout the state. All it takes is one negligent driver. When an accident happens, the drivers involved are expected to stay on the scene as required by law until things get sorted out. But what if you were injured by a hit-and-run driver? That is when you need an experienced car accident lawyer to fight for your rights.
At Romanow Law Group, we know the impact a hit-and-run accident can have on victims. You are left with injuries that require medical treatment, and the medical bills are adding up fast. You may not be able to work. How can you file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company when you don’t know who the other driver is?
Experienced and aggressive car accident attorneys
Our firm has experience with hit-and-run accidents and will work to identify the driver. It’s important to report your accident to the police as soon as possible, so they can start an investigation. Give them as much information as you can – for example, the make and model of the car, a partial license plate if you saw it, or a description of the driver.
Our legal team will work with investigators. For example, there may have been video footage of the stretch of road where the accident occurred. Or there may have been witnesses who can provide information that helps us identify the driver who hit you.
Why do drivers leave the scene of an accident? A driver may have been unlicensed or uninsured – or both. A driver may have been afraid of getting into trouble because he or she was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or driving a stolen car. Whatever the reason, we will do all we can to identify the driver and hold that person accountable.
We fight for the best possible outcome
If the driver had insurance, we will help you file a claim to recover compensation for the damages you suffered. Even though the driver was clearly in the wrong by leaving the scene, the insurance company may challenge your claim and try to pay you less. Our attorneys fight to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Some hit-and-run drivers don’t have insurance, or don’t have enough. If you chose to add optional UM/UIM coverage to your policy, you will be able to recover compensation. Even your own insurance company may try to pay you as little as possible, but our lawyers build strong cases and fight for you.
If the driver did not have insurance, recovering compensation will be more difficult. The driver may not have enough income or assets to pay you. We will pursue every option to help you recover compensation.
