1.Do I have a good case?
The best way to figure out if you have a legitimate injury case is to consult an experienced personal injury lawyers like us.
2.Is it necessary to hire a lawyer?
If the damage is minimal and who-did-what-to-whom is evident, you don’t need a lawyer. However, if the liability is contingent, or someone is injured, it is recommended to hire a lawyer. You can also be fully compensated from the other driver for physical or mental damage caused by accident.
3.The other driver that caused the accident is uninsured. How do I get the coverage for the damage?
In principle, you can’t get your coverage, but if your insurance policy includes Uninsured motorist coverage (UM), it is possible.
4.The other driver that caused the accident ran away. Is it compensable through UM?
No, it is uncertain that the driver who ran away is uninsured or not, so UM does not apply for this kind of cases. You have to remember the license plate number of the other driver to find out whether he/she’s is insured.
