A hit-and-run accident often presents special challenges that other car accidents do not include. In addition to the concern over an injured person’s well-being and navigating the health care system, the quest to identify a negligent driver can be a dominant concern. While police may look for a hit-and-run driver, they may have many other competing priorities. It may be worthwhile to employ a private investigator to try to find whoever caused the hit-and-run accident.
What If We Can’t Find The Driver?
In the event that the driver cannot be found, the injured person or a member of his or her family may have uninsured/underinsured motorist (UI/UIM) coverage. UI/UIM insurance benefits may provide much-needed compensation for medical care and lost wage replacement. An experienced motor vehicle accident attorney can be the best ally an injured person and his or her family can hope to find.
At Kristopher K. Greenwood & Associates, we explore all options on behalf of our clients who have been injured by hit-and-run drivers. This may include employing the talents of retired police officers.
Our firm is ready to devote the necessary resources to thoroughly investigate your hit-and-run accident case. One of our investigators is a former assistant police chief and chief deputy. His experience in examining police reports, interviewing witnesses and handling other elements of hit-and-run accident investigations often works in our clients’ favor.
