Oakland Hit and Run Accident Lawyer
Have you been injured in a car accident where the other driver fled the scene? It is important to talk to a lawyer experienced in handling hit and run accident claims in the Oakland area. You may be able to recover financial damages for your injuries, but these cases can be complex.
Recovering Compensation in an Oakland Hit and Run
Attempting to recover financial compensation in a hit and run accident may be particularly difficult. You may not know who the other driver is and may therefore have questions about how you would be able to recover money for damages under that driver's insurance policy. Typically, the Oakland police will investigate the hit and run accident (particularly if someone was injured or lost their life in the accident) in an attempt to locate the driver. Hit and run is actually a criminal offense that may be a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the extent of injury caused. In addition to law enforcement's efforts, our law firm will work with private investigators and other professionals to look for the other driver.
Even if the other driver cannot be found, you will be able to seek financial damages from your own auto insurance policy. Your Oakland car accident attorney at our law offices will work on negotiating with the insurance company to help ensure the full, fair payment of your claim.
Why a Car Accident Attorney?
An attorney can work immediately to protect your legal rights and your financial interests in the wake of a hit and run accident. Although action may be taken in criminal court against the driver who left the scene of the accident, you may also have the option to file a civil lawsuit, and this is where a lawyer at our firm can help. We can help you seek the money that will help you rebuild and move on after a serious accident of this kind.
