Hit and Run Accidents in Santa Rosa
AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION FOR VICTIMS OF HIT & RUNS
A car accident can be frustrating under any circumstances. In most cases, you can expect to exchange information with the other driver. When the accident is due to a hit and run driver, however, you’re left on your own.
At The Law Offices of Freeman & Freeman, we understand how aggravating hit and runs can be. Since 1957, our California lawyers have represented injury victims in all types of accidents, including hit and run accidents. The hit and run driver may be long gone, but you don’t have to be alone in your fight for justice. Contact a Santa Rosa personal injury lawyer from our firm for a free and confidential consultation. We can listen to you and discuss your best course of action.
When we handle hit and run accident cases (sometimes referred to “hit run accidents” or “hit & run crashes”), we aggressively pursue compensation for our clients. The insurance companies may try to dispute a hit and run claim or low ball a settlement. Our attorneys at The Law Offices of Freeman & Freeman know how to take an aggressive posture and demand maximum compensation for our clients who have been injured or sustained significant property damage in hit and run accidents.
WHAT CAUSED YOUR ACCIDENT?
A driver who has been drinking may not stop after an accident out of fear of receiving a DUI. In other cases, the driver may have been operating without insurance. There may be other reasons hit and run drivers have for not stopping. We disagree. There’s rarely a legitimate reason to leave the scene of an accident. If you’re a victim of a hit and run driver, you may be eligible for compensation from your own insurance company.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
The following steps may help you with your insurance claim:
- Write down details about the vehicle that hit you, including license plate number and make and model of the car.
