After the emotional trauma of a car accident and the medical appointments for injury treatment have subsided, you are ready to seek financial compensation. However, if the at-fault driver left the scene of the accident, you may feel as if you have no place to turn. How you will identify the negligent driver and his or her insurance company? How will you pay your medical bills? How will you recover from lost wages? What will happen if you cannot afford the continuing care that you need?
If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident, talk to an attorney at Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, P.C., in New Haven, Connecticut. We have been representing injured clients since 1988 and understand the complex nature of these cases. We can help implement the necessary strategies in order to obtain a successful outcome.
A hit-and-run accident is handled similarly to car accidents with uninsured or underinsured motorists. If you have uninsured motorist coverage, you can use it to seek compensation for your financial losses. You may also be able to file a claim with your health insurance company for medical expenses.
Even though you are dealing with your own insurance company, it is still important to hire a personal injury lawyer to help you with your case. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, and yours may offer you a lower settlement than what you need. Our attorneys will work with you to maximize your financial recovery.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, P.C., we handle all Hit & Run Accidents cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not get paid unless and until you receive a settlement or a jury award.
