Hit & Run Accident Lawyers in Charleston
Compensation May be Available to You
There are few things more irresponsible than leaving the scene of an accident, especially when a person in the other car may have been injured. Unfortunately, hit-and-run accidents happen every day.
If you have been struck by a hit-and-run driver, you may be unsure of where to turn for compensation for damages such as medical bills and lost wages. At Warner Law Offices, PLLC, our attorneys explain your rights and answer your questions.
In a hit-and-run accident, you may never find out who hit you. Even if police are able to identify the driver, they may be uninsured. For reasons like these, insurance companies are required to provide drivers with at least $20,000 in uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM). You have the option of buying more UM/UIM coverage to make sure that you and your family are protected.
Even though you file a UM/UIM claim against your own insurance company, it’s important to seek legal help to ensure you receive all the compensation you deserve. Your interests, and the interests of your insurance company, are not the same. Your insurance company’s goal is to pay you as little money as they can — and, if possible, to avoid paying you any money at all.
The sooner you contact our firm after an accident, the sooner we can go to work protecting your right to full compensation. Our attorneys will help you document your damages and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
