Pittsburgh PA Hit and Run Accident Attorney
Hit and Run Car Accidents in Pennsylvania and Ohio
What do you do if you were in an accident with a driver who doesn’t carry auto insurance? Where do you turn for compensation if you were in a pedestrian or bicycle accident with a hit-and-run driver? Were you forced off the road by another motorist, causing you to be injured? Phantom drivers cause millions of dollars in damage on our roads every year. Under Pennsylvania law, auto insurance policies automatically include an amount of coverage for accidents with uninsured or underinsured motorists. In Ohio, the special rider is not required, but most drivers carry some level of coverage to protect themselves from irresponsible drivers.
Many people who suffer injuries or property damage from “phantom drivers” don’t realize that they can recover compensation from their own auto insurance policies. Many people who pay additional premiums to “stack” their policies for multiple cars can even collect against all policies after an accident with any one of their covered cars or vehicles. Your insurance company does not automatically pay these claims. Often it requires the assistance of an experienced attorney to help you get the compensation you deserve.
If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident or an accident involving an uninsured driver, talk to an experienced personal injury trial attorney at the Dallas W. Hartman, P.C. We represent plaintiffs in accident injury claims throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Don’t Be Treated Like a Hostile Claimant
No matter how long you have been paying your auto insurance premium with your insurance company, when you file a claim against your uninsured motorist coverage, you are likely to be treated like any other accident victim seeking damages. You will be going up against experienced insurance defense lawyers who will do everything possible to minimize the payout. Putting an experienced personal injury trial lawyer on your side is your best advantage to winning the settlement you deserve.
