Someone in a hit and run accident that suffered a catastrophic injury could potentially be eligible for significant compensation. To explore these options, it is important to contact an experienced car accident attorney so they can navigate the complexities of these cases for you.
The first thing you need to do after a hit and run accident is to seek medical attention. By getting medical treatment immediately, you are preventing your injuries from getting worse and you are showing the insurance companies that your injuries were serious and caused directly from the car accident. If you do not seek medical attention immediately, the insurance companies may make the claim that your injuries were not serious because of the fact that you waited to get medical attention. The next step is to make sure you gather information. You want to try and recall everything you can remember about the accident and details about the vehicle that struck you. At that point, you need to contact an experienced car accident attorney to help you navigate the complexities of a hit and run car accident.
