What To Do When the Driver Leaves The Scene

Some accident victims think that because the at-fault driver left the scene or can’t be identified, the injured person won’t be compensated for their injuries. Our experienced personal injury lawyer will explain your rights to recovery under the terms of your own insurance policy — or other coverage in your household. Talk to the attorneys at Jacobs & Dow, LLC, in New Haven, Connecticut.

If you’re the victim of a hit-and-run collision, call us. We can help. If the police catch the other driver, we’ll make his insurer pay. If the other driver gets away or has no insurance, we’ll find the uninsured motorist insurance that covers you and make a claim against it.

You Can Collect Compensation From Your Own Policy

As the victim of a hit and run accident, you have the right to collect compensation for your financial, physical and emotional losses from your own insurance policy’s uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.  Every driver carries this coverage under Connecticut law.

Our attorneys will work to maximize your recovery under all available insurance policies, including homeowners or renters policies. Our law firm has been successful in finding insurance coverage when none was thought to exist. We are creative advocates for our injured clients, focused on obtaining the best possible results in the most challenging of situations.

If you were a pedestrian hit by a car, or bicyclist injured in a hit and run accident, we can help you. We’ll find the insurance coverage you need, and get you the settlement or verdict you deserve. If you were in a rear-end collision or a side-swipe car accident and the other driver left the scene, we can help.
