Baton Rouge Hit and Run Accident Attorney
Louisiana Car Crash Lawyer
Hit and run accidents are those where a driver causes damage to persons or property and leaves the scene without identifying themselves. These types of accidents can result in serious injuries, especially if you were struck while walking or riding on a bicycle or motorcycle.
Whether the harm is done deliberately or accidentally, victims have a right to be compensated for the damages they have endured. Apart from any criminal charges, civil law grants victims the right to be paid for losses such as medical bills, lost wages and expenses arising from physical illness or disability. When the liable party cannot be identified, this process can become more difficult.
Bohrer Brady LLC, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, works in the area of personal injury law and represents people who need to be compensated for their losses. If a witness saw a license number or there is any way to track down the hit and run driver, we will pursue it. Often, we must pursue other sources of compensation, such as your uninsured motorist insurance policy.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage May Apply
Many victims of hit and run accidents have Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage that may provide insurance for hit and run accidents. Your premiums do not go up when making an Uninsured Motorist claim.
Call us to see if your UM coverage protects you from injuries caused by a hit and run driver. We offer free confidential initial consultations with an experienced lawyer.
Our attorneys have a combined six decades of experience and have enjoyed great success in recovering compensation for car accident victims.
