What Forms of Compensation Can I Expect?

Successful hit-and-run accident claims may award the victim with substantial compensation for their losses, which may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of income
  • Physical suffering
  • Emotional and psychological suffering

How Do Hit-and-Run Accident Claims Work?

Florida’s motor vehicle statutes require any driver involved in an auto accident where someone is injured or killed to stop immediately and render aid to victims or call for help, regardless of whether the driver was at fault in the accident. Drivers must share their contact and vehicle information with any parties involved—including other drivers and law enforcement. Failure to abide by these rules is a criminal offense under Florida law, and may be punishable by a fine, a prison sentence, or both. 

In many ways, hit-and-run claims are similar to regular car accident claims. Although it may be difficult to identify an at-fault party since they fled the scene, it still falls on you to prove that you were not at fault and deserve compensation. Even in cases where the at-fault driver is not found, you can work with an experienced attorney to obtain compensation for your property damages, medical expenses, and more. 

Ultimately, the most crucial part about your hit-and-run accident case is understanding how to get compensation for injuries or damages you’ve suffered. You’ll need to cooperate with law enforcement to help identify the at-fault driver who fled the scene—and work through the insurance claims process to collect the damages you’re owed. That’s why it’s so essential to hire an attorney experienced in investigating these claims. Our team at Goldman & Daszkal can help you navigate the entire insurance claims process, and ensure you receive maximum compensation for your accident.
