Don't Get Left Holding the Bag for Injuries You Did Not Cause
When a pedestrian is hit by a car, he or she has the right to seek compensation from the negligent driver. In the case of a hit-and-run accident, however, pursuing a claim can become quite complicated. If you or a witness is able to get a license plate number, the police can help you locate the owner of the vehicle. If no license plate number is available, then alternate solutions will need to be pursued.
Many people are not aware of their rights in hit-and-run accidents, and many never even pursue them. If you have been run over by a car and suffered a serious injury as a result, consult an experienced Mississippi personal injury lawyer who will help you understand your legal options. At Witherspoon & Compton, LLC, our Meridian hit-and-run attorneys represent personal injury victims across east central Mississippi.
Laurel Attorney Representing Pedestrians Hit by a Car
When a pedestrian is hit by a car, the potential for serious and even fatal injuries is extremely high. For the pedestrian, there is nothing to cushion the blow. The impact is direct, and the injuries are frequently both catastrophic and life changing. We are familiar with the types of injuries common in these types of accidents, and we work tirelessly to see that you receive all of the available compensation to help meet your recovery needs.
If the owner of the vehicle can be identified, we will pursue damages through his or her auto insurance. If not, we will pursue a claim under your own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage, if available. Even if you don't personally own a vehicle, as long as one vehicle in your household has UM/UIM coverage on it, we can help you pursue a claim.
