A family of four was waiting at a stop sign to make a left turn when the driver of a black BMW SUV plowed into their Toyota at more than 50 mph, ejecting a mother and child from the car. The 41-year-old woman was killed in the crash; police found her pinned under the Toyota. Her 9-year-old daughter was critically injured. Witnesses said the driver stopped long enough for them to see that he was drunk before he took off. One witness said the impact sounded like a bomb blast. Police are still searching for the hit-and-run driver.
Following an auto accident, the at-fault driver can be held accountable for the victim’s damages – medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of income, property damage, pain and suffering and other related expenses. But, when the driver flees the scene and is not apprehended, the recovery process becomes more complicated. In cases such as this, if the victim has uninsured motorist coverage, he/she may be able to pursue compensation from their own insurance provider.
Whether the hit-and-run driver is found or not, it is important that the family of the deceased contacts an experienced attorney to understand their rights to recovering compensation. Hit-and-run legal claims can be difficult to resolve, often taking months, even years, to reach a settlement. Insurance companies are more interested in dragging out the case than doing what is right. How does a personal injury victim cope with his/her present financial situation?
