A hit and run accident occurs when a driver hits another vehicle or pedestrian and flees the scene of the incident. That driver does not provide his or her identifying information or calls for help for any injured victims. This is a crime under the law, and not only can that person face criminal penalties, but can also be held accountable for the injuries that they have caused.

Our New Orleans car accident lawyers can advocate for your legal rights. You should never be forced to suffer in silence. To learn more about your legal options, please contact us today to make an appointment.

Fighting for Your Right to Compensation

Hit and run accident cases often tend to be complex, with so many legal obstacles involved. Law enforcement will be responsible for locating and apprehending the person responsible. It is up to your New Orleans car accident attorneys, however, to negotiate with insurance companies on rightful compensation.

Cossé Law Firm can help you find compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

Reasons for Hit and Run Accidents

Hit and run accidents happen for senseless reasons; drivers may have various reasons for fleeing the scene. They fear the consequences or already in trouble with the law and are trying desperately to avoid being caught. Drivers may not have insurance or they do not want to have to deal with the consequences of their reckless actions and this is why they flee. If the driver cannot be found, then you might also have the option of filing an uninsured motorist claim under your insurance policy. Our New Orleans car accident lawyers can help review all of the possible legal options with you to determine which route to take.
