A hit-and-run accident is a criminal act involving a motor vehicle leaving the scene of the accident. If the unidentified vehicle causes damage to another person’s property or person, the vehicle’s driver may be subject to criminal charges. Our Milwaukee car accident lawyers at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. have been working to get Milwaukee area residents the compensation they deserve since 2002, and we can do the same for you in your hit-and-run case.
Payouts in hit-and-run cases can depend on varying factors, as with all auto accidents. But despite the fact that the offending driver may not be found in hit-and-run situations, compensation for the victim is still available.
If you are involved in a hit-and-run accident, insurance companies are mandated by law to provide uninsured motorist coverage, even where there was no physical contact with the other vehicle’s driver, as long as there is a third-party witness to the accident. Understanding insurance laws can be confusing and dealing with the insurance companies can be frustrating. If you have been injured in a car accident, contact our Milwaukee personal injury lawyers at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. today.
