Baltimore Hit and Run Attorney
Hit-and-run accidents represent the worst in driving practice; the failure to stop and render aid or at least call the police and paramedics after hitting another person or vehicle is the worst response to an accident a driver can make. Some drivers may fear that the pedestrian, bicyclist, or vehicle occupants were seriously injured or even killed. Other drivers may be fully aware that the accident was their fault, and fear the consequences. Intoxicated motorists may not even be aware that they struck a person.
It is most common for hit-and-run accidents to include pedestrians and bicyclists, although car-on-car accidents also occur on Baltimore highways. Baltimore hit-and-run accidents not only injure people but also property. Drivers returning to their vehicle in a parking lot often find damage to their vehicle while the guilty party is long gone, not even having left a note. Filing a police report may lead to the identification of the fleeing vehicle, but if you or your property has been damaged by a hit-and-run driver, let the Baltimore Hit-and-Run Lawyer John J. Leppler help you recover your damages.
How Does Insurance Work for Baltimore Hit-and-Run Accidents?
If you are paying your automobile insurance, you may have uninsured motorist coverage if another driver hits you or forces you off the road and flees the scene. Uninsured motorist coverage requires you to make a claim against your own insurance company. Remember that your insurance company will go to great lengths to avoid paying for your damages, or to pay as little as possible.
For this reason, and so many more, your first phone call after you are safe following an accident should be to a Baltimore hit-and-run lawyer. John Leppler will be on your side and your side only, and will handle the insurance company, analyze your potential claims during your free initial consultation, and provide you with your legal options for getting compensation to cover your injuries and medical bills.
