A car accident is a stressful and unexpected event. When the driver who caused your accident flees the scene without taking responsibility, it makes a tough situation even more frustrating. If you or someone you love was injured in a hit and run accident, you might not know where to turn for financial compensation. At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, we can help.
Our Tryon hit and run accident lawyer will help you identify the at-fault driver or pursue compensation from your own insurance company. We will investigate your accident, collect evidence, talk to witnesses, and review your insurance policy. We will examine your coverage options, handle all verbal, written, and electronic communication, and negotiate on your behalf. With our guidance and support, you can focus on getting better while we focus on your financial recovery.
Our Hit and Run Attorney in Tryon Will Explore Every Compensation Option
Many people feel frustrated after being hit by a driver who fled the scene because they have nowhere to turn for compensation. When we represent you, we conduct our own investigation to hold the driver responsible for his negligent actions.
The sooner you get our legal team involved in your case, the more thorough our investigation can be. If we have the opportunity to investigate the scene of the wreck, we may find evidence that identifies the hit and run vehicle. If not, we identify other options for obtaining recoverable damages.
The At-Fault Driver’s Insurance Company
Whenever possible, we do everything we can to identify the at-fault driver or vehicle owner. If our investigation, your crash report, and witness observations can uncover the hit and run driver, we pursue their insurance company for the damages you are entitled to receive up to the limit of their policy.
If we cannot identify the driver or vehicle, we will help you turn to your policy to cover your expenses.
Your Insurance Provider
In North Carolina, uninsured motorist (UM) coverage is a mandatory part of your auto insurance policy. UM coverage pays your accident and injury-related expenses if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. Fortunately, it will also cover your costs after a hit and run accident.
When our hit and run accident attorney handles your case, we help you get compensation from your insurer if the at-fault driver cannot be identified.
Financial Compensation for Hit and Run Victims
A car accident can leave you with physical damage, property damage, and a financial burden that should not be yours to bear. When our hit and run lawyers representing clients in Tryon handle your case, we help you recover these costs.
Recoverable damages include:
- Current and future medical care
- Current and future lost wages
- Current and future pain and suffering
- Property damage or total loss
- Physical disability and disfigurement
- Diminished quality of life
At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, we obtain and organize two forms of evidence for you. One will prove the cause of the accident. The other will prove its financial consequences. We then negotiate with the appropriate insurance company on your behalf.
We Will Make Sure Your Hit and Run Accident Lawsuit Is Filed on Time
Your hit and run case is more likely to be resolved with a settlement than by going to court. However, if your case does have to go to trial, we prepare your evidence, exhibits, and witnesses for the court process.
We also make sure your potential lawsuit is filed on time. In Tryon, that generally means:
- Within three years of an accident that caused injuries, according to S. § 1-52
- Within two years of an accident that caused the wrongful death of a loved one, according to S. § 1-53
If your lawsuit is not filed on time, you could lose the right to file it, or it will be dismissed out of hand. Therefore, when we represent you, we must respect the applicable filing deadline to ensure your case can go to court if needed.
We Cover the Costs of Building Your Case in Tryon
A hit and run accident is stressful enough without adding ongoing hourly fees and a request for a huge retainer to its aftermath. Therefore, when our law firm represents you, we do so on a contingency-fee basis.
At no upfront or out-of-pocket costs to you, we will:
- Investigate the cause of the accident
- Search for the negligent hit and run driver
- Collect evidence, draft, and file your case
- Complete and submit all claim forms
- Locate and interview accident witnesses
We do all this and more to bolster and support your case and do not expect or accept compensation until we obtain it for you.
