Not only is leaving the scene of an accident against the law, but it also leaves injury victims with no guarantee that they will be able to recover the compensation they need from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. This can make it exceedingly difficult to afford necessary medical care, especially if the victim must take time off work to get treatment.
When a negligent driver leaves the scene, there is no assurance that he or she will ever be found. In cases like these, it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney who knows the law and can help you seek the compensation you need. You may be able to secure compensation through your own insurance policy if you have uninsured motorist coverage.

How Our Firm Can Help You with Your Claim
Hit-and-run accidents can be very complex, and having the right legal representation can go a long way toward ensuring a positive result. At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we have experience with many different kinds of hit-and-run accidents involving cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, and bicyclists.
If the hit-and-run driver can be located, we will pursue all of the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. In many of these cases, there may be punitive damages that can also be sought. We will provide a thorough evaluation of your case and determine the best course of action for your situation.
In cases, where the driver cannot be located, the process works in much the same way as an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim where you seek compensation from your own insurance company. We can review your policy to determine your coverages and pursue maximum recovery on your behalf.
