The Source Of Compensation In A Hit-And-Run Accident

In Alabama, every auto insurance policy is required to include uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, unless the policyholder signs a written waiver declining this coverage. The vast majority of drivers have this coverage, and that is the source of compensation in hit-and-run accidents when the negligent driver is never caught.

Do not expect your insurance company to simply hand over fair compensation, even though you may have faithfully paid your premiums for years. The insurance company will try to minimize your claim and pay you as little as possible. That is why you need an experienced Jasper hit-and-run accident lawyer on your side. We will help you get the money you need.

Phantom Vehicle Accidents

When someone is forced off the road by the recklessness of another driver, but there is no contact between the two motor vehicles, it is referred to as a phantom vehicle accident. These single-car accidents may involve collisions with trees, signposts or other objects and can be just as serious as two-car accidents. It is important for victims of these car accidents to know that there are options for compensation, and we can help them pursue those options.
