Sources Of Compensation After A Hit-And-Run Accident
In Alabama, every auto insurance policy must include uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, unless the policyholder signs a written waiver declining it. The vast majority of drivers have this coverage, and it is usually the source of compensation in hit-and-run accidents when the negligent driver is never caught.
However, 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 personal injury lawyer on your side to level the playing field and help you get the maximum available compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other costs. Let The Sapp Law Firm, L.L.C., help you get the money you need.
Phantom Vehicle Accidents
When someone was forced off the road by the recklessness of another driver, but there was no contact between the two 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 in these cases to know that there are options for compensation, and we can help you pursue those options.
