It’s hard to imagine how someone could just drive away after causing an accident. Did the driver even stop long enough to check on your welfare? Does that person care that you are stuck with medical bills and serious injuries?
Even if the driver is never identified, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. The Law Office of John W. Redmann, LLC in Gretna, Louisiana, offers the veteran legal representation you need if you or a family member was the victim of a hit-and-run accident.
Our experienced New Orleans motor vehicle accident lawyers have handled thousands of auto accidents in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana, including hit-and-run accidents. Whether you were injured as the driver or passenger in a car, or as a pedestrian or bicyclist, we will help you stand up for your rights to compensation.
It is against the law to leave the scene of a traffic accident without rendering aid to the injured, calling 911 or leaving identifying information. While the person who hit you may not ever be caught, your right to recover compensation is not dependent on criminal proceedings.
You are covered for injuries from a hit-and-run accident, including pedestrian accidents, through the uninsured motorist provision of your own insurance policy. Your insurance company should pay for your medical bills and future care, loss of income, lasting impairment, and pain and suffering. If the hit-and-run driver is identified at some future point, the insurance company can go after that person.
You should not be on the hook if you were the victim of a cowardly driver who left you there to suffer or die. Likewise, you should not be victimized a second time by your insurance company. The Law Office of John W. Redmann, LLC will fight for your rights to full compensation for serious injuries.
