Hit and Run Accident Lawyer in Santa Monica
Have You been Hurt in a Hit and Run Accident?
Carolyn, a car accident client of the firm.
Our Santa Monica personal injury lawyers have seen a surge in the number of hit and run accidents. If you have been hit by a negligent driver who fled the scene, you should speak with an accident attorney in order to insure that you are fully compensated for your losses. The first question we will have for you: do you have uninsured motorist coverage under your auto insurance policy? It will cover you for your injury claim as long as the hit and run motorist is never identified, or is identified but had no auto insurance.

What Damages can you Claim after a Hit and Run Accident?
