Need Help After A Hit-And-Run Accident?
If you have been injured in a hit-and-run accident, it can be very difficult to know where to turn for help. When the identity of the at-fault person is known, the information needed to file a claim can be easily obtained. In a hit-and-run accident, however, you may not have any information to work with at all.
I am Houma, Louisiana, auto accident injury attorney Brent J. Rhodes. For more than 15 years, I have been helping injury victims obtain full and fair compensation for the injuries they have suffered in accidents. I have a complete understanding of your rights in hit-and-run cases, and you can rely on me to pursue every available option in an effort to secure the best outcome available in your case.
Many hit-and-run accident victims do not realize that they can seek compensation for medical care, loss of income and property damage from their own insurance companies under their uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) policy. Unless you have signed a specific waiver to have the UM/UIM coverage removed from your policy, you have already paid for insurance to protect you against hit-and-run accidents.
Understanding Your Rights Under A UM/UIM Policy
Many people are hesitant to file a claim for a hit-and-run accident because they fear that their rates will go up or their insurance company will drop them. You have specific protections under the law that prohibit the insurance company from retaliating against you in any way for filing a claim under your UM/UIM policy. An experienced Houma hit-and-run accident lawyer can help you navigate the process of pursuing a UM/UIM claim.
