The Philadelphia hit and run accident attorneys at The Levin Firm know that being in an auto accident is stressful enough, sometimes people find themselves in a “hit and run” car accident, where the vehicle that collided with them has been driven away and is nowhere to be found. If you are involved in a hit and run car accident, you may be able to recover through your own insurance company. Our injury lawyers can recover for our hit and run car accident clients if the client has uninsured motorist protection. Many insurance companies require you to file your claim within a matter of weeks, so you should consult an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.
There are a number of different issues involved with hit and run cases. First, you must be able to prove that the other motorist cannot be identified. Additionally, you must be able to prove that the other driver was the one at fault. You must also be able to prove the monetary value of your claim. At The Levin Firm, we will conduct a thorough investigation into all these matters in order to ensure that you recover all the money to which you are entitled through your uninsured motorist claim.
The way these cases are tried depends on your policy. While some are held in a regular courtroom before your local court of common pleas, most uninsured motorist cases are not tried in court like many other kinds of cases. Rather, they are heard before a panel of three arbitrators: one chosen by the insurance company, one chosen by your attorney on your behalf, and a third chosen by the other two arbitrators. The attorneys at The Levin Firm, have worked with many arbitrators in their careers, and know how to pick the best arbitrator for your particular case. The three arbitrators listen to the evidence in your case and collectively reach a decision.
Hit and run cases are complex, and require attorneys who understand how to aggressively represent their clients. At The Levin Firm, our Pennsylvania and New Jersey personal injury attorneys investigate every claim so that we may aggressively and zealously represent our clients and obtain the best possible results.
