Hit and run accidents leave families devastated in their wake. My firm has helped clients suffering from all types of car accident injuries for over 25 years. I help clients get the compensation they deserve after an injury accident so that they can pay for medical care and cover the other costs incurred as a result of the injuries sustained. In a hit and run accident, if the driver is never located, it will be necessary to seek compensation from your own insurance company. Although one could expect that this will be a simple matter, in fact, insurance companies can offer less than is possible under the terms of your own policy. As a Rhode Island car accident attorney, I can help you to recover the maximum possible under your own insurance.
The Law Offices of Robert H. Humphrey have assisted many individuals that were injured by another's negligent or reckless behavior. I understand that in such a case it becomes imperative for a highly skilled personal injury attorney to step in and relentlessly pursue full and fair compensation for all damages. If you or a loved one has been injured by a driver that failed to stop and exchange information after the accident, you need a seasoned Rhode Island hit and run attorney to help you fight for justice and full compensation.
Failing to stop after an accident is not only wrong, it is illegal and a criminal offense. Drivers have a legal obligation to stop and render aid. Drivers that speed away in attempt to avoid criminal charges, and do not contact emergency services could be responsible for a wrongful death. The injured victim could be left behind at the scene of the accident without help, in some cases, for hours. It is common for hit and run accident victims to worry about how they will receive compensation. Although the driver of the other vehicle is not able to be located, you are still entitled to compensation for our injuries, loss of wages, rehabilitation and more, based on the types of insurance you carry.
