Birmingham Hit-and-Run Lawyer
Have you been hit by a driver who didn’t stick around to exchange insurance information? A Birmingham hit-and-run crash lawyer can make sure you get justice and the compensation you deserve.
Unfortunately, people are hurt in hit-and-runs all the time. Whether you were leaving the grocery store and found a huge scrape along your door or you were hit by a driver who didn’t stop, you or someone you know has likely been left frustrated or injured because of the negligence of a runaway motorist.
At the Henry Dailey Law Firm, we don’t want to see them get away with it. When a person leaves you to struggle without compensation after a crash, a Birmingham hit-and-run lawyer can see you through the process. Our lawyers can help you find the driver or file a claim to get the compensation you deserve.
We Can Help You Find the Hit-and-Run Driver
Many people are certain they won’t find the driver because he or she is long gone. After all, if the driver fled the scene and you didn’t even get a license plate number, where are you supposed to start?
Fortunately, our firm has the resources you need to get your Birmingham hit-and-run case on track. We’ll help you find the person responsible. There are many avenues for getting information about the driver who fled the scene of your accident, such as the following:
- Surveillance Cameras – Many areas post cameras for safety reasons. Speaking to the police about when and where the accident happened can help you get the license number or car make and model so you can get started with your claim for compensation.
- Nearby Businesses – Many businesses put up cameras of their own, and they may be willing to help. We can check with nearby business owners for help with this.
- Witnesses – If the incident was recent and another person saw it, he or she might have caught sight of the driver. Our firm can help you round up witnesses to interview.
Filing an Uninsured Motorist Claim After a Birmingham Hit-and-Run
Unfortunately, not every hit-and-run driver in Birmingham will be found. This doesn’t, however, mean you’re out of options. Once you’ve exhausted the possibilities to identify the driver who hurt you, you can turn to your own insurance company.
In cases where the other driver isn’t insured or left the scene, uninsured motorist coverage essentially covers what the other driver’s insurance should have covered. While this coverage isn’t mandatory, many Alabama drivers are encouraged to have it.
If you’ll need this coverage, we can help you review your insurance policy and speak to your insurer so you know what to expect from your case. If you’re struggling with a hit-and-run in Birmingham, know that there are options even if you can’t find the driver.
